The hosts file may help, but is not a total solution.  You would need to
disallow DNS lookups for sites NOT in the hosts file.  You could, in theory,
set the DNS of the machines in question to either an in-house DNS server
that only has records for a few sites (those that are allowed) or set the
computer's DNS to something that provides no service and provide DNS
resolution via the hosts file.
