Windows SteadyState User Restrictions
Take control of your shared computer with SteadyState restrictions
Protect your shared computer by customizing what users can do on it. Windows SteadyState puts you in control of which programs, features, disk drives, and websites are available to each user. For the inexperienced user, your computer will be more consistent and less complex. For an untrusted user, you can initiate enhanced security features on your computer.
Start Menu restrictions let you remove items from the Start Menu. This means you can disable user access to items such as:
* Shut Down
* Control Panel
* Command Prompt
* Windows Explorer
Drive restrictions determine which drives are visible to the user in My Computer. You can select the option to hide all drives, show all drives, or select specific drives that you do not want exposed to the user. These include printers or removable storage devices.
Program restrictions let you block a user from running a particular program, such as a system tool, simply by adding that program to the blocked list.
Feature restrictions can stop users from accessing program attributes that might damage or clutter the computer. For example, you can prevent users from adding to the Clip Organizer, creating Microsoft Office macros, using Visual Basic, or saving Internet Explorer favorites.
Internet restrictions let you set the Internet Explorer home page, and you can block access to any Internet site not specifically listed as allowed.

I googled how to do it and found it, thank you! I blocked facebook on my own machine as a test and it worked. Now I just have to wait for him to leave and I can block it on his as well.
And, it seems obvious to me but just to clarify - all he has to do to get back on facebook is to delete the host addition, save, and he is able to browse to facebook? Hopefully he wont figure it out but we'll see...
