In the user's browser settings....

create a fake proxy setting,and make the two allowed sites be the exception.

Enforce restrictions which will not allow the user to change Internet Explorer connection settings through local or group security policy.

It is helpful to also allow microsoft, adobe, and sun to allow those applications to update.

Something else

by tardcart In reply to Blocking Sites

To consider is locking it down in your firewall or router if you have the option or set up an outright proxy server. I'm somewhat of a IT Nazi, so I have a propensity to lock down anything that could be deemed "time wasters" like myspace, facebook, youtube, game sites etc. as well as anything objectionable. But what I've realized is that for everything you do to prevent someone from doing something, they'll either find a work around or something else to do to kill their productivity. At that point it's time for HR to decide how valuable an employee is to the company and take appropriate disciplinary action up to and including termination.
