You are going to have A LOT fun trying to get this working with GPOs and/or logon scripts. You may want to change your approach and look at something like this: http://www.untangle.com/

You need a proxy server that can limit internet access then assign the proxy to those users via group policy assigned to an OU with those users in it.

Sorry I can't tell you what proxy to use (I don't use them) but you can look at this link http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Win2000/Q_21725470.html to find out how to set proxy settings in GPO.



Is there any other solution other than Proxy server..

Proxy would be the best and easiest to manage, there are many types of proxy out there some are even free

as ebjers said The best way to do this is by firewall (like isa server from microsoft) not
by gpo. Anyway, if you want to do it, you could use a "fake proxy server":
create a group policy that enforce proxy setting of for example. In
this way the users won't have acces to the internet. For the sites on which
you want to grant access, you must put them on proxy exceptions.
