Remove the modem from his computer.. :) or just disable the modem in his hardware profile , and remove him the ability to access the control pannel/hardware properties with group policy...

Or run this application and remove what you do not want him to access. I think in the free version, you'll have to do it under his own username.. check it out.

With the licensed version, you can load another user's profile, make the desired changes, and save them.  WITHOUT HAVING TO LOG ON to their Desktop. so it'S only installed on your username, not his.

Most of these tools have downloadable and time limited demos. I would suggest installing this "Family Filter" on your computer which is NOT defeatable and will block all access to porn, chat, and file sharing.  Without these features folks quickly bore of accessing the internet. Their service costs about $50/year and is impossible to defeat because it runs at the SYSTEM service level and requires a password (and reboot) to uninstall it. It doesn't however answer your question about blocking all internet access.

In order to block all internet access I suggest:

"PC Security" which you can configure to your own parameters. One seat license is $45

"Internet Lock" from these folks is only $30.

"ENUFF" can be used to restrict internet access. $30

And "XP Protecter" has a variety of similar tools for $21.
