No, you will have edit the hosts file in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC. It is basically a simple text file but doesn't have a .txt file extention.

Here is a good guide on the hosts file:

Blocking Unwanted Connections with a Hosts File

You can use one of the unified hosts files listed in the following website and add your custom block entries as needed.

I will have to read this and try it when I get back to problem computer. My computer has a long list of sites. The problem computer has no sites listed. Most of the sites on my host file were put there by my security programs. If there are any more words of wisdom before I get back to the problem computer, I am all ears. Thanks
