How To block website using windows host file

 Hosts file is a list of web addresses. When you type an address on  browser, it checks for instructions on the HOSTS file; if no record about a website is found, it opens a website for you. Otherwise, it opens a website from an IP address defined on the HOSTS file. If the address leads to, you won’t be able to access the website, because is an IP address of your computer.

Find and open the HOSTS file
Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7
Then open hosts file using Notepad 
The entry must have two parts: an IP address and the address of the website you want to block. Choose as an IP address, leave a space and then type the address of the unwonted  website.
