All great ideas so far. Another thing you can do is just create a new DNS entry in your DNS server and set the domain.TLD you want to block to point to 127.0.0.1. The address never gets resolved, and you get nothing but a blank page. Or, change the IP address it points to to google.co.uk's IP address so at least they get Google.

This is a post which will make some of you smile, but only if you are using Websense v7. This solution will block igoogle in all it's forms.
#1 Remove all present recategorization entries for igoogle.
#2 In Websense Manager, click on "Recategorize a URL" from the tasks pane on the right hand side of the page.
#3 Select a previously created, custom-blocked category or add a new one, select it, then click "add".
#4 Click on "Advanced" to show the "Regular Expressions" dialog then click on "Add Expression".
#5 Add these two entries:
#6 Save your changes, then check if the policy applied to your users has the custom category containing this entry set to "blocked".
This works for me, hope it works for you too.

Is there anyone out there who currently only uses EMBC's filtering who can advise how to block iGoogle? The little darlings have found a Virtual Stripper module that we can't seem to stop access to. We can block access to the website that appears to host it but the module still works...

36degrees - do you want to block just that module, or all of igoogle ?

Definitely that module, all of iGoogle if possible.

36degrees - we've spoken with netsweeper (who provide the filtering sw in embc) and they are looking at ways they can more effective manage igoogle and the various gadgets. there are a couple of ways we can specifically help you - can you pm me your school details and ill get someone to give you a call and talk thru the options.
