Block Websites Without Using any Software

Steps to block:
Browse C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
Find the file named "HOSTS"
Open it in notepad
Under " localhost" Add www.sitenameyouwantblocked.com , and that site will no longer be accessable.

So localhost www.blockedsite.com

-->www.blockedsite.com is now unaccessable<--

For every site after that you want to add, just add "1" to the last number in the internal ip ( and then the addy like before. www.yahoo.com www.google.com www.hotmail.com

Steps to unblock:
Now just remove the line (containing URL of site ) and if you have added more than one sites to block then make those number come in serial order like localhost www.orkut.com anyothersite.com anyothersite.com

Now for example if you want to unblock orkut.com then remove the line and number them in a way that they come in a serial manner localhost anyothersite.com anyothersite.com
