    Hi, I tried to block a website on Windows 7 acer computer but it still opens when i search for the website. But when i reload it, it says that the website refuses to connect. I am confused. I did the blocking by the notepad way but it does not work. I tried doing other websites and I blocked it. Only the website diep.io can still be accessed. Please help me.

    You failed to mention what browser you are using.

    You blocked a website then are concerned because it now doesn't connect. Wasn't that the point of blocking it?

    Please explain "blocking by the notepad way" because I have no idea what you did.

    I'm guessing you added that website into the Hosts file, if so please paste the text of that file into your next reply.
