trying a new way of blocking virus's


Recommended Posts

so i got tired of my son downloading virus's off the net

he is a limited user, but they still download, and still do "nasty stuff"

so, i poked around in my router, and found out i could block items by "keywords"

i put in exe, zip, msi, and ocx

needless to say, doesn't matter who's on the pc, those items get BLOCKED

so far so good

just passing this info on

Try using OpenDNS instead, and get a license for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
