    Better to get some sort of appliance but if you want a quick fix you can make some entries in your DNS --> Forward lookup zones   Right click --> New Zone --> add the web address and a bogus ip for it to point to  IE     It is pretty easy to get around if you know how to do it but for most basic users it will do the trick while you find a better solution.

    Watchguard equipment is pretty easy to manage once it is set up.

    Run you $300 for the device and probably the same for a networking company to set it up.

    Nice thing is it is very easy to manage if you are willing to read the instructions.

    I do Squid(Free)! I'd recommend running Squid with Dansguardian ....squid is the best but keep in mind it requires times and skills to install, manage and configure it with other components. I used it in many complex environments with success but again you need  the skill in Linux and squid (open source packages)...

    Use comodo DNS,  norton DNS or openDNS services. Run or your clients PC

    that gets a little more complicated. the biggest factor will the type of switches you use, if you have cisco, net flow is the answer to your problems. you need to look into a network management software, we use spiceworks for some info, very useful and its free.
