    Is there a way to block a specific web site. For example, need to block MYSPACE.com for kids...can I block this particular site without installing some bloated software program?

    Yes with your hosts file.

    These are all I have with myspace in the link in my hosts file.
    Don't even go to the ones with zango in the name because bad things can happen to your PC.
