How do I block Facebook from my computer?

There's a file:

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

The file resolves domain names. You can override Facebook's addresses by adding:

127.0.0.1 www.facebook.com
127.0.0.1 facebook.com

You will probably have to have Administrator permissions to edit the file.

This will work for any domain name, but in particular Facebook has a tendency to waste time on non-productive activities.
