How To Block Websties Without Software?

Here is the steps to block websites without using softwares:-

Steps:
  1. Browse C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
  2. Find the file named "HOSTS"
  3. Open it in notepad
  4. Under "127.0.0.1 localhost" Add 127.0.0.2 www.sitenameyouwantblocked.com , and that site will no longer be accessable.
  5. Done!
So,

127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.2 www.orkut.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 (127.0.0.2) and then the addy like before.

ie,

127.0.0.3 www.blablabla.com
127.0.0.4 www.lifehacker.com
127.0.0.5 www.blablabla.com

etc.
