Block Website using Right Click Context Menu in IE

It happens sometimes that while browsing the internet we come across a website that we don’t want to visit. What we do is block it instantly, but with this registry file we can add an entry in the right click context menu so that we can block the website instantly before closing it.

Blocking some particular website is a good way to ensure that we don’t come to see that website again but this process is bit long so with this reg file called BlockThisSite (developed by winhelponline), we can add an entry in the right click context menu, so that we can block a website with just a click.

Add “Block This Site” to the Right-Click Menu in IE

Windows XP
1. Download BlockThisSite_XP.zip, unzip the contents to a folder.
2. Double-click BlockThisSite.reg to run it.
3. Move the file BlockThisSite.htm to the C:\Windows\Web directory.

Windows Vista
1. Download BlockThisSite_Vista.zip, unzip the contents to a folder.
2. Double-click BlockThisSite.reg to run it.
3. Move the file BlockThisSite.htm to the C:\Windows\Web directory.
4. Move the file BlockThisSite.vbs to the C:\Windows directory.

What this reg file does is, it adds the page to the hosts file and blocks it for future browsing.

To Remove the BlockThisSite option

To remove the entry just run the Undo.reg which will make the hosts file and the right click menu as before.
