This video describes how to access websites that may be blocked by your school. To begin, on the desktop go to the Start menu and select Run. Type in "cmd" and hit okay to open the command prompt. If that doesn't work go to Start, My Computer, C drive, Documents and Settings, Default User (or the name of the user), Start Menu, Programs, Accessories, and finally click Command Prompt.
