Prevent distractions by blocking websites Cold Turkey (Basic version) is a clever little tool that can help you stay focused on your work by blocking you from accessing your favorite time-wasting websites. Websites can be grouped into three lists so that you can easily select which group to block at certain times. You can configure how long you want to block yourself from those sites, which can be anywhere from just a few minutes to up to 3 days. Once the time has expired, Cold Turkey will automatically re-enable access to the blocked sites. The free version does not allow you to change the block times until they have expired. The sites that you choose to block will be unavailable in all browsers on the computer. Once you hit that button to start blocking, there is no way back! The program will not let you cancel the blocking until your self-imposed blocking period has expired! Cold Turkey uses the Windows HOSTS file feature to block the selected sites, which may cause some security applications to alert you of a HOSTS file change - you can safely ignore any alerts. The free Basic version only supports basic features and blocking for up to 3 days. A Pro version with application blocking and additional features can be purchased. Copyright

Less distracted at work 5 stars by jostein.risa543 Dec 29, 2011
Often too much time at work are spent on the Internet on sites that are not work-related. Then I found this program - just the one I have been looking for. It works for all browsers (unlike some other programs I tried) and without me trying it seems as too much hassle to get around it. You set a time and the domains you choose will be blocked until this time is reached. The only feature on my wishlist is the ability to make a schedule for all week: To be able to block i.e. time consuming newspapers all day except in the lunch break and 15 minutes in the afternoon. show Review details
