Sorry not to make it more clear . Its not for a specific user account.

We have 5 different Students OU according to the year group they belong to.
I want to create a separate GPO and link this GPO to all the 5 OU's, so that any PCs within this 5 OU , have denied internet access.

Thanks

Disabling interenet access from GPO is not reliable step instead you will require proxy server or firewall to control the same centrally.TMG or ISA Server will suit the requirement.if you want to apply GPO then see this:http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/e223c2f4-c4ab-4dc5-b475-8cbd0b107eea/gpo-settings-for-ie?forum=winserverGP
