Why fastest? To cut if when download is already started? How about not providing a file for downloading?

More seriously, you would have to either configure the router to doisallow access to a certain URL, or you would have to establish a group policy for the domain and push it out to the workstations. The group policy could be something as simple as a HOSTS file that redirects the URL to localhost (or an alternative of your choice), or making automatic settings in the Windows Firewall on each machine. The EASIEST thing to do would be to configure the router.
