To BLOCK it only:
Open Notepad as Administrator (right click and select Run As Administrator)
Go to File Open and browse to:  C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
Open the HOST file
Below # 127.0.0.1 localhost paste following code
# Blocking Facebook
127.0.0.1 login.facebook.com
127.0.0.1 www.facebook.com
127.0.0.1 apps.facebook.com
127.0.0.1 m.facebook.com
127.0.0.1 blog.facebook.com

Open in new window

Click Save

Now if you try to go to any Facebook site you will be blocked or more less the request will try to find Facebook on your computer.  

This is specific to user accounts, and if they have admin rights on the box they can change this setting back if they know about the host file.

Hi Chrispy2811,  
Thanks your solution is working. But i need to include this in my vb6 program. Do you have any idea how to insert this? or make another solution using vb6 work with the same function?

Do you mean that you want to be able to turn the blocking on/off from within a program?

Do you want to running as a service in the background or an application that the user knows is running?
