    Your best bet is to edit your HOSTS file to block websites.
    See the TIPS section for a very useful guide.

    Add the sites to the HOSTS file, this is the best way.
    Or do You really want to install some software just for this?

    You find the HOSTS file in Windows XP here:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\HOSTS

    Open the file with notepad or any simular, You'll understand how it works when You see all the other sites.

    For an example:

    127.0.0.1 www.kazaagold.com (This will BLOCK kazaagold.com)

    Save the file and You're done!

    MyIE2 has a built in URL blocker - but the browser itself takes a while to get used to
    the blocker interface is pretty much the same as the HOST file though, so you might just aswell use that
