    Hello Sir,

    I am a small businessman from Pune, India. I am running a cyber cafe business here.

    Due to strict anti-piracy laws here, we are not allowed to download, copy or play any media files (MP3, avi, vob etc etc etc)

    It is extremely difficult to stop the download etc of all the media files in our cyber cafe as users don't bother about the laws. And the law enforcement agencies catch the owners of cyber cafes for any piracy which the user commits from our cyber cafe.

    Thus I would like to know, if there is any setting in windows xp so that i can prevent certain set of file types to be downloaded or copied in my cyber cafe pc's??

    If there is any software for such a purpose it will be great where in i will just block these media files??

    I think such kind problems would be there in big corporate companies where piracy can be rampant, what do these people do.

    Please help, as the law enforcement agencies here are becoming stricter everyday and they are going to such lengths to trap us in their net by hook or by crook. These people send decoys, copy and download media files in our computers and immediately afterwards they raid our premises.

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Content filtering software aimed at parental control should do what you want. Check out Net Nanny, Cyber Patrol etc.
