I tried the search but none of the keywords were found :)

In my work place one of my workers is spending way too much time browsing. I have decided that it would be best for the company to reduce his internet access. What we want to achieve is that worker should have access to some certain addresses except for most. We have tried the IE content control but that thing is just for fun. It still lets you go anywhere except for explicit sites.
Could anyone please help me with finding a solution on how could we manage to restrict access to all the internet addresses except for 5 certain ones. I am looking for free of charge software or other options.
The platform we are using is windows 2000 and browsed is IE. We might get Firefox but not yet clear.

Thank you in advance.

free of charge is a bit difficult to accomplish since the Internet is pretty dynamic...you could find every website he goes to and enter those addresses in the hosts file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts) with the loopback ip as the destination...but then he'd just go to another site instead of the ones blocked...and if he googled the website then he'd probably still be able to get there

to get his access TRULY blocked you'll need to invest in some kind of software or hardware....
