    Sorry, this may sound dumb, but I'm a brand new OpenDNS user. I'm having problems with employees on our single computer at my office spening way too much time on goof-off websites. So what I want to do is install OpenDNS to limit access to domains. I will of course not let employees know my OpenDNS password. But is there a way that without knowing the password they can get around OpenDNS when I'm not there? Let me add that we do not have individual passwords or account to access Window, we all use the same Administrator account. Thanks!

    You have absolutely no control at all, then.

    Pretty easy to do if they know how too.

    You are showing concern for the (ab)use of the office computer.

    If you are the boss/owner, or if you are responsible for the technical up-keep of the computer, then create a general user account (but without Admin rights) and the employess can do their job. Do that simple step and you're well on your way to solving your problems.

    (set a good password for the Admin account, don't forget).

    You can also try to enforce a firmer grip on your network if you edit the custom response page and tell them a short company policy on personal web surfing. I've used that on my company and it has deterred them to waste their time on social networking websites.
