    Create a new OU - place users into new OU. Right click OU and choose Properties. Click "group Policy" tab. Choose "New", name your new GPO, then highlight it and choose edit. This will open a new box called Group Policy Object Editor. Browse down to User Configuration\Windows Settings\Internet Explorer Maintenance\Connection and right click "Proxy Settings", choose Properties. In the new box that pops up make sure you check off "Enable proxy settings", for your proxy address use port 80.
    now the important part, in the exceptions box, enter the websites you want users to be able to access separated by a semicolon (;). This will make any website not in the list show up as inaccessible since it will be trying to route them through a non existant proxy.

    Hope this help and if you need further help just post!
