    Hellow guys!! :)

    firstly, i have tried google but i only got few info for softwares for parental control..it doesn't match what I want to find. plus i dont know which keyword should i put to describe it, so please you guys with kind heart, help me :rolleyes:

    I'm trying to find an application that can limit my internet access to certain application that i allow to, because my internet connection is very limited. for example, when i'm surfing, I would like only chrome have access to internet and i dont want any other application trying to update or anything else using internet.

    I know about microsoft firewall, but I dont like to edit the setting everytime. i just need a simple application.

    hope you guys can give me some good apps suggestion, thanks for reading & merry xmas.. :D

    not sure that this is possible, but I'll move it to networking so you'll get more hits.
