Website Access Block (Spyware Issue not Parental Control)


Is there any way to completely block my computer from accessing a website address?

I was updating my wireless router firmware and took a look at the access log, where I discovered the website "" was being accessed up to twice a minute from my computer.  McAfee Site Advisor is showing that this is an unsafe website.

I'm really concerned that this is spyware since I tried to block the website being accessed through my router.  It does show the blocked message when I enter the address manually but when I look at the log the website is still being accessed at other times.

Thanks, any help is appreciated

Could you please provide me with the following details ;

What is the operating system of the computer?

What is the McAfee package installed in the machine ? Total protection/Antirus plus/Security center ?

From where did you find the logs stating the computer visited the above website ?
