    hi roland,:)

    upon my searching in blocking skype by googling, i found an insteresting website :eek: , this tools is open source and can block skype and traffic filltering.

    but i don't know how to implement it :confused: , i'd asked the webmaster and still waiting for the reponse, here's the link

    http://www.lynanda.com/products/software-for-corporations/traffic-filtering

    in any case, if you can implement the tools, please tell me what to do.

    note: i'd installed the winPcap successfully. but failed at the TrafficTapDemo

    i'm still reading the link that you gave me.

    hi guys,

    i managed to block skype though at some quite a price T_T. i'd decided to use zonealarm pro, this firewall is good, can block programs and ports, ease of use. hope this can help.

    every time i run the trustnoexe control panel normally, it always dump my physical memory and my screen goes blue.

    but i manage to run the trustnoexe in safe mode, i allowed my C: and D: any my antivirus and antispyware runs well again.

    i'm still searching a way to uninstall this tool. still found no service and exe at the task manager, any suggestion?

    hi guys, found a way to uninstall the tools, i installed the tool in my notebook, i can uninstalled it by add/remove programs, but i deployed it to multiple computer, and the others cannot uninstalled it, so i decided to install the tool to the others and able to uninstall it manually.

    my comment is: this tool is not recommended for novice, not stable. the funny thing is that if the tool already deployed to the client and as example i blocked the skype, the client can stop the service at the control panel, not very powerful huh? from 1-10, i scored it 7.5.

    thx squashman for the tool.
