You can use Content Advisor to block all internet access except the ones you allow.

How about setting a dummy DNS address (e.g. so domain names can't be resolved while NetBIOS names can?

You could set it to use a non-existent proxy but by-pass the proxy for local addresses.

How to do this? Any detail step by step?

Try this... go to:

- Control Panel -> Network Connections -> (Right click on your connection, e.g. "Local Area Connection") -> Properties
- In the Local Area Connection Properties box, scroll down the list of protocols and services and double-click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)".  
- On the "General" tab, select the radio button that says "Use the following DNS server addresses:" if not already selected.  
- Enter for the preferred DNS server and for alternate DNS server.
- Click "OK" out of all windows.  Do NOT close the windows but click on the Xs or your settings will not be saved.

Remember, the users you are trying to limit can reverse these changes if their account types are computer administrator.  Make sure they logon to a limited account or limit access to the control panel through group policy.

Sorry, that last point was meant to read, "Do NOT close the windows BY CLICKING on the Xs or your settings will not be saved." =D
