You can block incomming/outgoing trafic from port 80 on your router. Log me in uses a different port, so people will not be able do navigate and you can still use Logmein.
You can also try setting a invalid DNS address on the computers so they can't resolve intenrt names, but can still use the internal network through netbios (Computernames and IPs).
Hope this one helps.

enable firewall on the machine and create a rule to block all traffic on port 80. alternately you can give everyone static IP addresses with incorret DNS servers so they can't hit any external sites.

on the users firewall block port 80 (http) and port 443 (https) both incoming and outgoing and you should be in business.
