I have Windows 7 up-to-date, DELL computer, I mostly use the updated firefox, I have no virus or spyware, My protection is always up-to-date and I have a firewall, also I was just wondering is there a password page blocker out there for fire fox that really blocks the pages when no one can get into it at all, like I want to block sites like Mediafire, and Rapidshare so no one gets on my computer and downloads them. Thanks.

You can use the Windows Hosts file to block access to those sites and others. If you need assistance post back.

For Firefox there's FoxFilter. I've heard that's pretty effective. But outside of the hosts file there's not much you can do without enabling parental controls of some sort.
