    go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
    open host file. add the following entry to it

    127.0.0.1 www.orkut.com

    save it. replace the old one with this new one.

    use host manager utility from http://www.aldostools.com/hosts.html to achieve this; its easier.

    The fool proof way is to enable Content Advisor using IE
    Its located under IE -> Internet Options -> Content -> Content Advisor

    Just enable it and it will prompt you for a password to allow or deny a site to be visited

    Sooner or later, your brother might smell something fishy. So try Cybersitter.
    Cybersitter blocks websites silently and shows up a blank page so that the user might think that the site is down.

    Other sites continue to work as normal.
