    Hi all,

    I want to block ALL access to Instant Messaging (including online services i.e. through browsers) on our Home computer.

    I have already un-installed all Instant Messaging programmes and blocked MSN messenger via my software firewall.

    I was thinking of using a block list (with hostman) in order to block access to ALL online instant messaging services.

    1. Could you guys help me construct a list of all web messenger services? (or direct me to a list)
    2. Is there a quicker way to do achieve this?

    Thanks in advance.
