This may not be a good solution, but its the simplest one.

If you are using Windows XP or vista., open a DOS command window, type:

notepad C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Lets say that you want to block

hxxp://www.rediff.com

Add the following line to the file:

127.0.0.1 hxxp://www.rediff.com

Do change “hxxp to http”.
File > Save. You are done!
