    But this is not how the sites are blocked right?? Im not sure abt schools, but in companies they use something called “firewall” for which you have no control at all.

      (it may work) go the same file and you will get a file named proxy. just enter one more website you want to see in the place where good networks are written. then you will be able to open that site

  • vinu

  • saniya

  • Isaiah

    tried this but am required to provide the administrators’s password.
    how can i go on without it?

    • Suresh Kumar G

      Yeah, you need the admin rights to do it. The only way is by resetting the admin password by using password reset disk or usb drive.
