Double-click Sygate in the System tray - click the Applications button - go the the chat program you want to block and right click on it - change the status as required.

I didn't suggest blocking the sites, I suggested blocking the chat program. But if you want to block sites, you can do this in Internet Explorer. Go to Tools - Options - Security - then go to the Restricted Sites buuton - and add the sites you want to block to that zone.
