    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,

    Ash

    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?
