Block access to a website

It's not always possible to block sites through the hosts file. How to proceed then?

Through the Windows Defender Firewall

Note: if you have a pc with the below Firewall rule, you can ex-/import the rule, avoiding having to type over 10 or more IP addresses.
  • Switch to the Advanced settings
  • Add a new Outbound Rule
  • Rule Type: Custom
  • Program: All programs
  • Protocol and Ports: <default>
  • Scope: Which remote IP addresses does this rule apply to? These addresses: w.x.y.z & a.b.c.d (e.g. be aware that msn.com & www.msn.com have separate ip addresses!!!)
  • Action: Block the connection
  • Profile: leave all 3 check boxes selected
  • Name: Block intrusive websites
