Website-blocking software

by Sparlingfairy / September 7, 2008 6:27 AM PDT

Is there any software out there that can password-lock websites (ideally more than one website at a time). I have been trying to find something for a while now, and I cannot find anything that is free. It is either expansive or just on a trial basis. I need something that, once you?ve inserted the password, doesn?t let you back in for at least a month or so. Is there anything like this available?

Nothing reliable...

In short, nothing free that's decent, and even the paid software can be circumvented, rather easily in most cases. The only sure-fire solution is someone standing behind the person using the computer.
