Do you wish to block all access entirely for specific users?

If so, a simple way to do this is to set up a policy which will input a duff proxy address in IE's connection settings.

The setting is stored:

User configuration>Windows Settings>Internet Explorer Maintenance>Connection

Just put any IP address in there.

Then change the scope of the policy from All Authenticated users to a new security group that just contains the users whose internet access you want to completely block.

The 'proper' way to do this is to use a proxy server, that way you can easily restrict access by group, set up white and black lists and monitor usage etc.

Proxy servers range from free - such as squid http://www.squid-cache.org/
to expensive such as ISA Server - http://www.microsoft.com/forefront/edgesecurity/isaserver/en/us/

It depends what your needs are and how deep your pocket is !
