Anyone know how to block TorBrowser from working on a computer.  I'm trying to help a porn addict break the habit.

 

I know this defies the purpose of the browser but if anyone can help me block it on Windows 7 it would be greatly appreciated.

Tor is a very poor choice for any image or video streaming as it is slow compared to normal browsers.

 

The best way to help a porn addict is counseling, and the person has to recognize the problem themselves and want to change. The problem also has to be their problem, not someone elses.

 

Trying to restrict access (by disabling Tor for example) could be just like destroying a junkies stash, they will go find more elsewhere.

 

There's no technical solution for this issue.
