If you are learning to block websites when Windows 7 firewall errors on your computer, you should check out these repair tips.
Windows 7 Firewall is enabled by default. However, you can change many of the firewall settings if needed. Configure three different network profiles in Windows 7: Home, Work, and Public. If you are using a public network, you can block incoming connections. At home or at work, you may want to skip all incoming connections. Sometimes you only want Windows Firewall to block one website. Do this through the Windows Content Advisor.
Open Internet Explorer from your computer.
Select “Tools” at the top of the screen. Select “Internet Options” from the drop-down menu.
In the “Internet Options” menu, go to the “Content” tab. Scroll down to the second menu item, Content Advisor, and press. Wait for the new menu to appear.
On the Content Advisor menu, click Settings. If the Administrator Password Required dialog box appears, enter your Windows 7 password in this field and press Enter.
Click the “Approved Sites” tab at the top of the screen. Wait until the words appear “Authorize this website” with blank dialog box.
Enter the full URL of the site you want to block access in the blank dialog box under “Allow this website”. Activate “Never”. (Another option is “Always”.)
Click “Apply” to confirm that you are blocking access to the selected website. When you receive a message confirming that the change has taken effect, click OK. The website is now blocked by your Windows 7 firewall.
