Editors' Review

+

Its name notwithstanding, Website Blocker fails in its quest to block objectionable sites. At the onset, you'll need to provide an e-mail address and set up password protection before using the program. Website Blocker's small, straightforward interface is very easy to use. Just add the URLs of your choice and select whether you want to block a specific page or unblock it--that's it. We just wish it actually worked.

We tested it using Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, and this seven-day trial program proved useless. During our assessment, Website Blocker failed to execute its primary job of blocking our list of Web pages from loading. Keep searching for a more formidable site blocker.

"Useless. Kept crashing my browser."

July 24, 2012  |  By alicedi79

2012-07-24 12:14:12  |  By alicedi79

 |  Version: Website Blocker 1.1

Pros

None I could find.

Cons

Requires adding the sites manually. Kept crashing my browser.

Summary

Qustodio is a far superior program than this. Have been using it for quite some time without any issues at all. Tracks data, blocks sites in real time and is free. Shall stay with it.

Not comfortable with a program that malfunctions right at the get-go. I'm uninstalling it.

"It's no longer supported by a website"

April 28, 2007  |  By mattnmona

2007-04-28 21:00:51  |  By mattnmona

 |  Version: Website Blocker 1.1

Pros

It worked for a while, but only when your off-line.

Cons

This program only worked when you input websites while off-line. The program blocked page list periodically dissappears. Now the program publisher no longer has a web page or support email. I think download.com should remove it from their list!

"Didn't work"

 |  Version: Website Blocker 1.1

Pros

Blocked one page once.

Cons

Would not block the pages I wanted it to, therefore completly usless to me. I uninstalled this program the next day, there has to be something better out there. Also it said that the page had been blocked by that program, I would rather a program that blocked the pages with a 'Page cannot be displayed' message or similar.
