Does your company use a Firewall?  Just add a rule in your firewall that blocks any TCP connections to *.logmein.com
Easiest way is to block access to the website either using a hosts file which points logmein.com to (localhost) on each individual client machine or block access at the router.
Faster then editing all host files, is setup a new domain on your server called logmein.com and just leaving all entrys blank. This will stop all DNS lookups via the machines.

This will fail if your users can edit TCP connections, but will usualy mean they have admin rights so they can edit the host file too.

The firewall is the safest way to sort it.
Sorry, I ment to say "new domain in your DNS Server".
