Another option is to uninstall Internet explorer and windows messenger from add/remove programs / add/remove windows components.  But this you will have to do this on each machine.

Yes blocking port 80 or forwarding it to an unused ip port will block all incomping tcpip packets on port 80 (http) from all computers in the company.

you could also configure each ip address independantly to block each ip address on port 80 i.e. do not forward to 192.168.0.100 new rule do not forward 80 to 192.168.0.103 etc.. This document might help http://www.netopia.com/support/hardware/technotes/NQG_039.html

Through group policy or local policy add a bogus proxy server.  This will only effect browsing but will still allow other ip fuctions to access the internet.  This way you rclint machine will still be able to get virus updates, windows updates and be able to use an email client like outlook to retrieve email.
