Suppose you wanna block www.orkut.com then or some other site like the below one
example:the below page is taken for example only no one can report abuse about it

1] Browse C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
2] Find the file named HOSTS and open it with notepad
3] Go to the last line - " localhost" - under that add www.orkut.com, and then that site will no longer be accessible !!!

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts localhost www.orkut.com
If you wanna block more sites you can add more lines to this by addling 1 to the Loop back IP

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts localhost www.orkut.com www.yahoomail.com www.gmail.com
Group Policy
Open Group Policy (Run -> gpedit.msc)

Go to User configuration -> Windows settings -> Internet explorer maintenance->
security -> double click Security zones

Enable security zones and privacy by selecting import the current security zones and privacy settings -> Click on modify settings -> Click on privacy -> Click site -> In the address of the web site tab add the site name you wanna block -> Click block -> click OK -> OK -> OK

This will block the site.

This configured can be done on the local system or the same can be configured in GPO and can be applied to the entire domain !

now your work is done and enjoy the trick
