We're currently experiencing problems with employees using office computers for personal use, which as of late is believed to have given us a virus (already taken care of) but now that we're clean we want to protect ourselves from this ever happening again. I set up seperate users for employees to use, and password protected my account (and the administrator account) after I did that I went into internet explorer options and enabled content protector (internet explorer 7 currently installed) and very satisified with myself after setting it up, i logged out and logged into my account to find that enabling that option applied to my user account as well, and I have a lot of internet surfing I do in my position to all types of sites. If I leave it on and just keep on entering in the password each time I'll be quite frusterated, and taking it off runs the risk of me forgetting to reset it when I leave.

So my question is:
How do I block all sites but the few that are work related ONLY under one user name. So that all password protected users still have the freedom to access the internet without problem.

Is it a seperate program I need to download?

Some questions :thumbsup:

How many employees are we discussing?

How many computers and what version of Windows?

Of interest what antivirus and other protection is on the system and how do the computers connect?
