One is to list all the sites you don't want in the Internet Explorer 'Internet Options' section like this. While in Internet Explorer, click on 'Tools' in the upper left, choose 'Internet Options'. When that loads, click on the 'Security' tab, then click on the 'Restricted Sites' icon, (the red ball with a minus sign in it), then click on the 'Sites' button and add all sites you don't want visited in this area. Unfortunately, this method can be difficult because you will need to know EVERY site that you want to block.
There are also retail programs that will do exactly what you want to do. They do cost money and many can be found by visiting any search engine and typing in 'Internet Filter' or 'Parental Controls', or something similiar.
The method that I find the easiest is through the use of a HOSTS file. It can be downloaded for free from the internet, then placed in the C:\Windows folder and it automatically blocks all sites that are listed in the HOSTS file. In addition to many unwanted 'adult sites', it also blocks most advertising pop ups that are shown when visiting websites. Here are a couple of links that should help:

Either of the sites above provide for a downloadable HOSTS file.
Hope this helps.
