You can use parental control software. Many internet security like kaspersky have inbuilt feature.

If you have Zole Alarm 7 or greater, you'll find a Parental Control tab where you can block many categories of websites together by specifying a password.

you can also use host file to deny access to site - It will work with any browser, If you are using Vista, you have inbuilt Parental Feature! [Comes in XP too in Home Edition]

What is this Host file. and how to use it. I use Xp.

Simply use NetDog. It's very lite. And effective.
I will try this also.

So many options. Can you suggest me the right option. I actually want to restrict Orkut and yahoo.com
 
You can try one more thing. Get a static IP address and use OpenDNS. You can now block anything you want by configuring it in an account in OpenDNS.

This works but is an incredibly hackish approach. Also you need seperate entries for domain.tld and www.domain.tld

+1 for OpenDNS

1. Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
2. Open hosts file in Notepad
3. Add at the bottom

127.0.0.1 site.com
127.0.0.1 www.site.com

So it looks like this
# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.1 site.com
127.0.0.1 www.site.com

Done! and site should be blocked in all browsers

U can also use K9 software, which is free and does the job perfect. I use this to al my employees in my office. But later moved to a hardware firewall box, thru which we hv enabled proxy.

Thanks friend this looks and easy approach.

though I will try to learn each trick.

this may be easy way but not efficient one....
what you are doing here is overwriting ip of the site....and redirecting user to local machine than actual ip of the site....
esp you may fall into problem if u run some servers in that computers...
and offcourse u have less control options...

^ and if the person you are restricting knows this method?
there is no password protection.

I tired the K9 software. It works great but the problem is that the user will know that this website has been blocked intentionally. I don't want other users to know that particular website has been blocked by someone.
