You can use some proxies. I am not sure if it is legal to give a proxy adress here warn me if it is wrong but hidemyass . com would be a useful choice

:) you're welcome, by the way maybe I have forgotten to mention, that site is a web based proxy too. You don't need to put it into proxy settings ;)

Try web based proxies, its just a site where you enter the URL and it will go there routed through the proxy server. Or you can try manually setting up proxies using the proxy server's IP and Port #. Its a bit harder though. Or you can try using Tor with XeroBank browser which will make your connection hop through other people's computers, and then go to its destination. Can be quite slow though. Or you can try remote desktop software which is my preference. I install the software on my home computer then I can control it through the internet at the blocked computer. I personally use LogMeIn or VNC.

Ok thanks for the advise. I am aware of those web base proxy sites. I think that will work. I've tried before using proxy IP address but that won't work now since IE browser I have were deactivated to input those IP addresses.

Well if your sites are blocked by your administrators theres nothing you can do about it. They have the control. You can just ask them to unblock your favorite site. They usually do this to prevent you from taking up too much bandwidth by your site.
