Block Internet

Block anything on the desktop with IM Lock Software.

IM Lock is a blocking software that will ensure anything can be blocked by the PC administrator.  With this extremely useful desktop utility, you can block a website, block multiple websites, block ip, block access to programs and functions, and much more.
The two primary categories of blocking are Internet and Programs.

Website blocking is a primary function of IM Lock.  An example is to block msn in it’s many forms.  An administrator can install the software and block msn messenger, block the msn website, block any other site associated with msn or it’s derivitives.  How to block websites is very simple.  If you access block websites in the categories section, you select the sites to block.  For example, block youtube, or block facebook, or block mypspace, or block orkut.  You simply check the boxes and the sofware will automatically by blocking websites you have selected.

Program blocking is also simple.  If you open the block messenger programs, or block p2p sections in the categories, you can simply select the program to block, for example block limewire, or block msn messenger.  If they are selected the program will be blocked when the user tries to access it. We find this is much more useful than port block because most of these programs will jump ports if you block their primary port.
