    There is - a search of this forum will bring up threads such as <post:=325,990>post 325,990</post:>.

    Is this for a specific machine? or a domain-wide restriction you want to put in place?

    You should be able to set up something with Policies - there is a discussion about it in this Microsoft article - but personally I am not going to be able to help more on that.

    Alternatively, if you have a firewall/router connecting to the internet, it may be easier to block access to certain sites using it. This would also be a more practical solution if your users have access to alternative browsers.

    One of your options is to block outbound traffic on Port 80 - the default port for browsers - by reconfiguring your router. If you are looking for selective site blocking, there are also a number of commercial solutions - such as SurfPatrol. Could you perhaps provide a bit more detail about your setup? HTH
