Help with blocking a web site

Can anyone tell me how to block MySpace.com off of my computer (I use IE). I have a teen age daughter who is spending way too much time on there and I need to stop it. I am just afraid of all the negative stories out there recently. Thanks for your help

This is a valid reason.

This is pure paranoia. You should then also block yahoo.com, google.com, and ... dvdtalk.com .

I think he means all the negative stories about teenagers getting in trouble via MySpace in particular.
