Suppose you wanna block www.orkut.com then or some other site like the below one

1] Browse C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

2] Find the file named HOSTS and open it with notepad

3] Go to the last line - "127.0.0.1 localhost" - under that add 127.0.0.2 www.orkut.com, and then that site will no longer be accessible !!!

********************************************

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.2 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

127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.2 www.orkut.com
127.0.0.3 www.yahoomail.com
127.0.0.4 www.gmail.com
