I am interested to know how to block a website on windows 7 (I'll have to do this using any code or programming language).

I already know how to do it through hosts (it isn't practical).

I need to know how do other Software (Microsoft family safety, Parental control software) block a website?

Can you provide a more precise question as to what software in particular ect.. right now I can say a lot will host a webpage on your local host and route you to it via local hosts file, others will change your DNS settings to route all request through there DNS server to route you to there page when they detect you going to a flagged location –  50-3 Aug 13 '13 at 0:01
