There are other options that you can consider
Access via Proxy Server than can block/filter the websites.(Not Free)
 --- ISA Server http://www.microsoft.com/isaserver/
  ---WinProxy http://www.winproxy.com/index.asp
Edit the host file on each PC and put an entry in it for each domain you dont want the users to access and point them to (localhost)

You could also just add the unwanted domains into your DNS server with no records.  That way you dont have to go to every computer.
