Can you please give me the step by step process of restricting internet access to specified users based
on the login of users using Group Policy. I want some of the websites to be accessed by the users as
exception.

Create a OU for these users and make a GPO rule that will make IE settings use a proxy server of 0.0.0.0

In addition, I would also set the policy to hide the connections tab inside of ie, to prevent attempts to bypass it....

I agree with all of the above.

However, if you're running Windows 2008 DC's you could accomplish this through GP Client Preferences.  It may be easier this way.  If you're only talking about a few users, then I'd recommend just putting them in a group and link the GPO to just that group rather than creating another OU.  It all depends on your experience, number of users, and infrastructure.

On Windows 2008 DC - Client Preferences
1) Open Group Policy Management Editor
2) Expand User Configuration
3) Expand Preferences
4) Expand Control Panel Settings
5) Right Click Internet Settings

From there it's up to you to add whatever you need.  You can modify the proxy settings from there.

If you want to disable the connections tab inside of IE per johnb6767's comment, please see this related post:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/XP/Q_22889617.html
