To prohibit access for a group, apply a GPO that contains a bogus proxy address. Also in that GP restrict the user from being able to change their proxy address. To prohibit by specific computers, you can use the same strategy, only with group policy loopback to apply the GP to the computer instead of the user.

There is no sure fire way to prevent users from viewing any site. Third party programs are somewhat effective, but there are just to many ways arround them. The MMC add in Group Policy, User, Adminitrative files also offers some limited help. I haveused the Microsoft IAS server with great sucess, however this is costly. I have advised many clients to notify all employees their broswing habits are being logged and non-business use could result in dismissal. If you have a legal department, I advise letting the attorneys develope the statement. This is very effective with most, there are always some who will challenge you, than you have to act or everything goes. I have one client now fighting a sexual hasserment suit. The IAS server is cheaper--even if you win.

Thanks for your input. I agree there is no sure fire way to stop access. I am working for a k-12 district so internet access is a real big issue. Unfortunatley, funding is the hurdle here. Am considering using an open source solution forproxying at each school as the MS solutions are just simply to spendy. Have any suggestions for proxying. thanks
