How do I block certain applications from getting online with the Windows XP Firewall?
with great difficulty, its a piece of crap.
Moved to the right forum.
You cold try Outpost although it's payware but you will be able to block a app from doing one thing but allow it to do another. + a shed load of other stuff too.
EDIT: They changed that offer .
Try this free one:http://www.zonealarm.com/security/en-us/zonealarm-pc-security-free-firewall.htm or http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/firewall.php or http://free.agnitum.com/ or http://www2.ashampoo.com/webcache/html/1/product_2_0050__.htm
They are all free, heck, try 'em all and see which you like best...
Yep, XP's firewall really is weak.
I use PC Tools Firewall, freeware and pretty good.
I use PC Tools too, good piece of software.
I found this on through google for Windows Firewall:
Click Start>Control Panel > Security > Windows Firewall > Change Settings, and click Continue if prompted by UAC [Windows Vista].
2. Click on the Advanced tab.
3. Check the applications that you want to unblock and Uncheck the applications that you want to block.
