I was repetedly asked the same question how can i block a surten internet sit
funny but i had no idea.
The problem is that students in the school go on computer and watch [bleep] or go to the
flirting sites and stuff,one of them is the most popular and they would like to block it

but when i save it only works on xp
the windows 98 still refreshes the site and works ql

in windows 98 the hosts file should be located in C:\WINDOWS not system32...it's also generally a hiden file so you may need to work to find it

are these computers on a network at school or is there just internet access? does the school have any kind of firewall or anything like that in place? has the school looked into content filtering software?
