Blocking a web domain for internet explorer
Can anyone think of a way of blocking a single domain centrally that stops a user from visiting that domain in IE?
I only want a single domain to be blocked so purchasing or implementing an entire infrastructure isn't really practical.
I have thought of the obvious, deliberately poisoning the hosts file but thats messy and other than scripting it isn't easily manageable centrally.
Does anyone know of a quick easy way to achieve this?
Thanks in advance,

Assuming IE is not configured to use a proxy server, and you have DNS infrastructure in place (AD?) you could just add the zone to your system and return a false IP address?
If there is a proxy server, AND it can/is using a DNS server under your control the above trick will work.
I'd assume though no proxy's are in place otherwise you'd filter from there?
