In order for it to run, I need to be able to prevent a game I have recently installed from accessing the internet.
I can do this at present by disabling the broadband connection each time it is played, but this is inconvenient. (No gain without pain some might say!)
Is there a way to block this individual game from having access? I have XP (Home) with SP2. The firewall seems to only ‘allow exceptions’ rather than blocking a program having access entirely and is not effective in this case. Ideally I would like to be able to do this from within XP itself without having to install another firewall such as McAfee (with all seem to be more virus-like than the viruses they are tying to prevent.)
I have read of a possible method via Administrive Tools but it is difficult to understand and in any case seems only to apply to XP Pro.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
