    Question Web page detering

    I have an anoying sister who keeps going to a stupid site and playing games to take up my time. I was wondering...Is there a way to make a different page show up when she types in the URL of the game page? Thnx in advance.

    you can change the security setting to ban the site, but i suggest you get a new computer instead...

    if she goes to the same site all the time you could add it to your hosts file:

    127.0.0.1 somedumbsite.com

    this will make it look like the site is no longer there, all that will come up is "404 page not found"

    start -> find/search -> name=hosts in=c:\

    edit the one labeled hosts without any extensions on it.

    When I did that and went to thedumbsite.com it still went to it. When I origionaly oppened hosts there wasn't anything there. Is that the wrong file?

    Correct file. You need to add the entry in as tedob1 has stated. To elaborate on it, put in the IP address of a known site that you are okay with. ie yahoo's ip and then the url that your sister has to use to get the game or whatever you want to prevent her from reaching.
    so your context would be as follows:
    Code:
    127.0.0.1                   pogo.com
    (loop back ip)           (gaming site)
    by default, your computer will look to this file for the IP to resolve the url to first.
    If you point it to your local loop back ip, she won't get a page at all. If you point it to an IP of a known good site, she should get that known good site.

    Suggestion:

    Might try to find a file in the C:\windows> directory called LMHosts and input the same stuff that you would put into what you put into the Hosts file. See if this works for you.
