Blocking websites in Windows is a fairly straightforward task.
What you need to do is navigate to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\ and edit your hosts file.
Before you start, make sure to backup the original file!

You can locate a quick guide Here on editing the Hosts file.
The first part of the guide is written for Windows 7, but the process is the same for Xp.

Best luck!

Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
And open Hosts file with notepad
scroll down and add website you want to block in this way:
127.0.0.1 http://facebook.com

Replace facebook with other website and save hosts file. You are done. Now try to open that website it wont open now.
