How can I set internet blocks on my comuter, for adminstrator accounts (I am an adminstrator also). I want to block all other admin accounts from certain sites, and make it so they are unable to take the blocks off. Can anybody help me?

Need specialised third party software for this, which usually doesn't come cheap.

First, is there a reason why you need more than one admin account? Is this Xp HE or PE? In XP pro you could use different user groups (admin, power users, users) and file permissions to lock the Hosts file from other than admin changing it. Use the Hosts file to block sites by looping them back to the host machine.

Or you could still use a Hosts file to block sites as long as the others don't know about it. There is a Hosts toggle script for when you want to unblock sites for yourself. But this can easily be undone with admin privileges in place and the knowlege of how Hosts work.
