You could redirect the sites you want to block to a dead link using your computer's hosts file. C:\Windows\system32\Drivers\etc\hosts It has not extention but you should be able to open it with notepad. Any site you want to block add to that file.
this will redirect facebook.com back to your computer for anyone who uses that computer. To get back to facebook just go back into the host file and take that entry out,

I see someone else did a better job of explaining it... http://www.computing.net/answers/ne...
