How to adjust the blocking setting in Windows Local/Group security policy?

Asked by zhujunxu (1points) October 20th, 2011

I cannot get access to certain website (absolutely none adult site) from my Windows 7 laptop.
What is the blocking mechanism I should adjust other than those in IE settings (I have tried)?
It is not blocked in hosts file nor in IE blocking setting.
I guess it is a matter of local/Group security setting? Need help.

How are you accessing the internet… Hotspot, your own internet service, work internet? are you ising wireless or wired connection? Are the blocked sites social media sites?

Personal machine or a work machine? Is this at work or all the time? Are the blocked sites also blocked from co-workers’ machines or just yours?

Things that sap productivity like Twitter and Weibo are often blocked without the need for them to be adult sites. Is that the case here?
