Hi,
I want to prevent a program from accessing the Internet , how could I do this in Windows XP SP2, the integrated firewall can not do this, and I don't want to install a 3rd firewall. Can anyone give me a suggestion?
Thanks (y)

Open the Group Policy Editor (GPEDIT.MSC); might be something in there which allows you to block internet access for certain programs.

I have been looking around but didn't see such a thing, but I think windows should be capable of doing this somehow ?!

You might be able to do it with IPSEC but don't quote me on that. I would just use Zone Alarm and call it a day.
