XP: sp2 with all updates? If not, is it service pack 1, or none?

Are you using Internet Explorer? What version?

Is the website on the Internet or one of the other computers?

Your other option is to refer to the manual of your hub or router and disallow all connections for 1 computer except for the site you wish, if the router supports this. You would need to access the configuration for the router.

If you use a firewall, block all outgoing requests except those for the website you want.

You can try this, I haven't used it myself:
Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings
Use the localhost as proxy, or make up an IP that is impossible (use numbers above 255).
In the setting "Do not use proxy server for", add the website you want.

edit:
Make sure the default account is not Administrator (always do this anyway). Limit the user account so that these settings cannot be changed, that is, the user cannot access internet settings or the registry. There is all sorts of things users should not have access to, but there are plenty of resources available about locking down your systems, and this is well beyond the scope of this Q&A.
