1 word for you:
If you aren't running Vista yet, you can use this program. It updates daily, or by command instead whenever you want it to, which only takes seconds.
You can choose which IPs to block and which not to specifically by typing in allowed IPs, simply because it blocks so many that it even ends up
blocking online gaming services and other types of internet services. It also has an option section to select broad categories of IPs to block or not
block, including Government & Military IPs, Anti P2P IP's, Adware/Spyware IP's, Universities and Educational institution IP's, and more. Plus, this
is all global, not just the USA or the Western Countries. Mine is currently blocking 773,343,256 IP's. Most of the day it stays quiet, I get no hits
to my IP, but whenever I log onto a P2P service, oh man .. it lights up. Torrent programs too.
Phoenix Labs makes it. Do a google search for it, you will be happy you did. I know for a fact it works; my sister wasn't using it, and we're on the
same network, and I was using it. She got in trouble by our I-Net Company twice for downloading copyright television shows or movies, while I have an
incredibly vast collection of stuff they'd just love to scan and find, and I've never received a letter from the internet provider about me having
anything. BTW she had a firewall running, the default XP one, and I run no Firewall.
So go get it! It's free .. Peerguardian 2, by Phoenix Labs. You can even block HTTPs .. which just about cuts off access to all websites, but hey,
there's got to be a reason for it being an option there? heheh.
