Hi
I want to block access to the tor browser on pc. Tor is able to bypass K9 Parental control's restrictions. I am able to block access to sites that offer to download in the K9's specific sites to block page, but I want to make it unable to be opened without an admin password in windows 10.

Is there anyway to prevent it being installed? I disabled programs being installed in the group policy editor, but this did not prevent the tor installation.

Please help!

The Tor browser is just a modified Firefox browser

 

I dont understand? You have to go to the site to get the browser, how would it get downloaded without you doing it

 

My ad vise would be, not to visit the deep web especially using Windows

 

The deep web is where a lot of hacker lurk, and are good at messing with things. make sure you have flash player disabled

 

 

My suggestion, dont go to the deep web. Some people believe the Feds watch the Tor download page, to track whoever s downloading it

 

Might be just a rumor though

The Tor browser can be used to pypass the parental control I have installed on my pc. I do not want the parental control to be bypassed...

I believe OpenDNS can block proxy sites/services.

Block it in firewall, use this app then your kids or whoever are not gonna get past it.

 

 

 

You can uninstall the program after you block what you want, and K9 should prevent access to the firewall settings.

Another tool they make should be what you are looking for, can only compliment the last tool I suggested.
