    open the ZA control center, select the firewall panel and zones tab.
    Click add, and use the host/site option for the www.MySpace.com and choose block.
    You won't be able to access the site or get anything from the site.

    In addition to jdoliver's suggestion of firewall/ blocked/ site - you have ZA Suite which contains The Parental Control feature with
    pass-word protected settings.<hr>Please 'right click ZA tray icon &gt; see &quot;Help&quot; = this is your User Guide &gt; see chapter 'Parental Control' - all is explained. You can filter/ block sites.<hr>In your web browser - like IE 6/ 7 you can add sites to a &quot;restricted sites&quot; list. Tools &gt; Internet Options &gt; Security &gt; Restricted Sites &gt; add the full names/URL to be restricted.<hr>:8}NaiveMelody NYC 4-13-08 - Teach Your Children - Crosby, Stills, Nash &amp; Young

    If you have broadband, block the site in your router as well. This will ensure that it is blocked for any Internet enabled devices on your LAN including computers, PDA's, PSP2's etc. A PC blocked by a software firewall can be easily bypassed by booting a freely available and free LINUX distro like UBUNTU or Knoppix which come on CD's. LINUX distros come with web browsers (like Firefox) and when booted, will automatically connect to the Internet and give you full and unrestricted net access.

    If you are technically minded, you can also use OpenDNS to set up a profile that will provide you with the ability to control the whole internet access profile for your LAN.

    Even with all these protections, be aware that where there's a will, there's a way. It all depends on how much trouble you are prepared to go to to achieve your aims.
