How to block a specific IP address in Vista

Q: How to block a specific IP address in Vista

I have Vista now, and want to block my network from accessing specific IP addresses. When I had Windows XP, I used to use Sygate Personal Firewall to make advanced rules to do this. However, SPF does not work on Vista. What resource-lightweight solution can I use to block specific IPs? Thanks!

Preferred Solution: How to block a specific IP address in Vista

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am in a bit of a pickle. I'm trying to figure out how to block a certain email address from recieving emails from me, but at the same time bieng able to deliver Cc and Bcc recipients in the same email.

I don't know much about SMTP filtering, but I know it could do the job if done right.

I have been trying to figure this out all day...help!

Thanks people!

P.S. I know it's a very weird question, but believe me it's a lifesaver.

To all the fonts of all knowledge.
I have two questions which are simple ones but I cannot find or don't know where to start to look
Up until now we have supplied just software to our customer and now we are looking at providing the hardware as well as the support for said hardware.

1) The plan is that when we need to carry out any maintenance to the laptops, instead of me or one of my team jumping in a car/plane to the customers location to update the software (both windows and application), the customer connects the laptop to the
internet and dials into our Secure VPN so I can then RD into it to do all the work remotely. However the customer cannot have access to anything else in the outside world. I know it can be done as my wife's laptop cannot access the internet
but only through her company VPN. I want to do the same but not give the customer access to the internet at all just my external IP address so I can access it.
2) We will provide them with secure USB memory sticks to use but they can only use these ones, all others will be blocked. How do I do this?
Your thoughts will be very much appreciated

I have configured my LAN card for 2 IP addresses. These addresses represent 2 independent communication links. I want to ping other system through ONE of these 2 IP addresses so that if the intended IP address is not configured, then ping should fail. ( I have found options to ping through specific interface, but here the interface is same for both the IPs).

I'd like to block access to a specific website across my entire home network. I'd prefer to do it from one location, rather than on each computer. I have a WRH54G Linksys wireless router; I heard that I can access some central control there to block websites; but I've tried many password combos without success ([none]/admin; [none]/Admin; admin/[none]; Admin/[none]; admin/admin; Administrator/admin; Administor/Admin; ) etc. I'd prefer not to pay for anything, if possible. How do I do this?

I'm using Vista, but I'd like this to work on XP (pro, SP2/SP3) as well. I'd like this to work for IE6, IE7, <strong>and</strong> IE8 if possible...definately IE 6 and IE7. If it works for Firefox or Chrome, all the better.


A:How do I block access to a specific website?

Step 1: Click the Start button and select Run. Now type the following text in that Run box:

notepad c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Step 2: You will see a new notepad window on your screen containing some cryptic information. Don’t panic. Just goto the last line of the file, hit the enter key and type the following: orkut.com facebook.com myspace.com

Save the file and exit. That’s it. None of the above sites will now open on your computer.

You can block as many websites as you like with the above technique. If you want to remove the ban later, open the same file as mentioned in Step 1 and delete the above lines.
i think it will work somebody told me abt this but i havn't tried it myself coz i m a adult :D

I made a post awhile back about a HDD making clicks, as though the arm was resetting. Occasionally while accessing files explorer freezes. I however noticed this has (so far) only occurred at a specific point of disk usage.

I'm hoping I can some how amputate the bad section of the drive so it is never read or written to, or even seen for that matter. There are no disk errors in a scan, so I just want to cut a chunk out of it and hope for the best. Is there a safe way to do this?

Okay, I start this way. Me and my brother have both W7 Home 64bit, and I'm able to connect every other computer, but not his. also he can connect others but not me (example. I cant see him on network, cant connect his server (any game that needs your computer to host it up)). everyone says that we have blocked eachother somehow.
It worked when we bought these W7', and then stopped working. so we set these two computers back to factory settings, then it worked again for a while, and now it has stopped again.

PS. if the problem isnt with our blocking, then say it to me and I'll fix the title.

Thank you.

A:How to unblock/block a specific computer?

Hello slim, and welcome to Sevenforums!

For both computers:Make sure they are updated completely.
Type "Manage advanced sharing settings" into the start menu search bar and click it. Make sure network discovery is turned on.
Make sure the game isn't blocked by windows firewall or an antivirus program. Into the start menu search bar type, "allow a program" and click the first option at the top. Find or add the game to the list and make sure it is allowed on all home/public networks. Temporarily try disabling your antiviruses on each computer.
Make sure each game is completely updated.
Test it. Go into Network and see if each computer can see the other. Can you connect to each other now? Some games such as Age of Empires II no longer support connecting to each other, even over LAN connections. Could the game be the cause of the problem for you (how old is the game)?

Depending on your network setup, you can just remove the default gateway from the user's computer. Hopefully the user shouldn't have admin rights so the user can't possibly go in and change the settings.

I'm not sure if this type of software exists, but I hope it does.

I work at a high school and some programs need to stay open nearly all the time. The kids up here, however, close out the programs. It's a major annoyance.

Is there any program out there that can block specific programs for being closed? Or if they are closed, they automatically re-open? For example, if someone tries to close out Microsoft Excel, the program would stop them and give an error message or just not have the option to exit the program at all.

Thank you for your time, hope you can help me.

A:Can Software Block Specific Programs from Being Closed?

In my Win XP Pro, it's possible to make Administrator the only one who can load or unload drivers. That might do what you want.

Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Local Policy Settings->Local Policies->User Rights Assignment->Load and unload device drivers.
Or possibly, Lock pages in memory.

Not sure what either of these actually do.

As you know, most protective software is to keep programs from running. Programs protected from being shut down have another process running that monitors their status and restarts them. Trojan Hunter has a monitor process. I think such protectors would have to be specially programmed; not commercially available.

Long story short, the ultimate solution, to my dilemma, would be a way to "Disable Active Scripting" on a "per-website" basis.

However, from all of the research that I have done thus far, that option looks grim.

Using Internet Explorer, here is the problem at hand:

I go to a website, one of those websites where, when you click on an Input box, say like a search field, automatically via Java Script, one Pop-Under, or more, appear.

Not Pop-Up, Pop-Under, there is a substantial difference, trust me, as Pop-Ups are stoppable.

This is a great annoyance to me, as to anyone, as that Pop-Under is almost always advertising based.

I have tried a number of solutions, from a number of various engineering sites throughout the net, to stop that Pop-Under, but, for some reason, being that Pop-Under is being called from Script, it appears impossible to stop, at any cost, short of turning off Active Scripting, which I can not afford to do, as some sites, I still need the scripting on.

Just a few of the solutions I have tried:

* I look in the source code of the web page, gather all address that refer to advertising, get the Name Server IP, add those IP's to the HOSTS file. Still gets through.

* Do a video screen capture as the Pop-Under is called, to go back slowly, and see the very fast flashing IP of the offending Pop-Under. Add that IP/Address to HOSTS, still gets through.

* Took the offending IP of the Pop-Under and attempted to block it via Windows... Read more

A:Windows 7 - No Solution Working To Block Specific IP

It shouldn't matter that the IP is called from a Script. Is it possible they are maybe using different IPs, hidden frames etc to fool you into blocking the wrong IP?! Have you looked at the page source? Have you tried Developer Tools(F12)? From there you can see all connections from a window/tab. In the IE window you want to check, press F12, go to the "Network" tab and press play, then do a reload/refresh in the IE window.

The Windows Firewall by default allows all outbound connections. You can still add block rules without having to change the default value from allow to block.

To block the entire pop-under from opening you have to block Scripts from executing at the page that's creating the pop-under window. And my understanding is that you don't want do to that, not for all sites anyway.

A blacklist approach is not as good as a white list approach. For example you could use zone Trusted instead of Restricted, and set the Internet zone to level High. It takes more time to maintain a white list but it'll work much better!
I have IE configured this way: Internet Zone = High, Trusted = Medium-High. I then add trusted domains like this: *.google.com
This approach won't stop all content from untrusted sites, but it will stop all Scripts and other less safe content.

If you still want to go for a blacklist approach, it should be possible. You just have to make sure you have the correct IP's to block, and from what you describe I'm not sure you have.

I'm currently installing an application that requires me to block/unblock specific files/folders. I'm not sure how to do this. It doesn't specify a specific antivirus. Right now the one on my computer is Norton Security Suite. I looked around and didn't see any feature like that. Is it common for most antivirus software to do that specified function?

A:block/unblock specific folders/files?

What application are you installing ? That might give us a clue as to what it wants.

Do you mean block ACCESS to files and folders ? Then you would need to know WHO you want to block. For example, when you right click on any file, choose Properties and then Security tab, you will see a list of accounts and what type of access each has, in the box below.

Hi all,

Can you please recommend an application doing similar job as adding records to the hosts file does? I'm looking for a tool capable of blocking connections for particular subdomains (not entire domains).

I don't really want to install another firewall (as I'm already using one) and I'm not sure if a firewall is able to block subdomains - I've always thought it's meant rather for working with IP addresses.

Your help is highly appreciated!

A:Block specific (sub)domains without editing hosts file

Use OpenDNS Parental controls. Otherwise you would have to use a router that allows you to set it at the router, in case someone figures out how to change the settings for the adapter DNS, to bypass the security.

A Firewall is the first layer of protection. They are made to allow an admin to protect each computer from receiving info from possible intrusions. Also allows you to stop end users from getting to malware sites, or attempt to go to certain IP's or URL's.

Since I installed 8.1, my machine is running hot, 45c, but when I shut down one of the many Service Host:Local Service(s), it drops back down to 20c, where it was always with 8.

I can manually shut it down each time.... but I's like to block it from starting in the first place. Shutting down seems to have no other effect other than dropping the temp.

I need to find a fix.... or go back to 8.

A:Program to block specific Service Host from starting...??

Hello (Rickkins). A Service Host is usually activated by a process.
A temperature spike would happen if there were increased CPU activity on a process (or processes).

I would check everything related to CPU utilization percentages in the task manager, particularly Processes and the Details tabs and Background Processes for excessive activity. What does your Performance (tab) CPU utilization score show at idle?

In 8.1, does it ever idle at around 3 percent (zero to 8) or is it running a process that drives the CPU score to a high percentage? Do you get high temperatures at low (or idle) CPU activity levels?

Do you get a temperature spike with a report like this?

I want another administrator account or any other account to NOT have log-off permissions to an administrator account. Forcefully.

I do not want to block task manager or anything else, it's specifically log-off permissions, usually done through task manager. The Administrator account in question is also hosting RDP so I also want to block anyone logging-off of that session as well if it's done separately.

Doesn't matter whatever inherited privilegies other accounts have, ONLY the owner of the account should be able to log-off IT SELF, nobody else!

I have searched and found nothing on web, looked in gpedit a bit but doesn't seem helpful.

Is it ok to block it? Will it affect file transfers between my 2 coms or the internet connection or something else?

A:Is it ok to block broadcast address?

It's a NETBIOS port for mapping a drive on the network. If you block it, it will probably affect drive mapping between the two computers. If you put your local LAN in the trusted zone for the firewall, this problem should not exist.

I need to know if theres a way to block someone from gettin into my computer directly via wifi- not thru a router but directly into my computer- I know the mac address cause i can see the router using inssider and I see that the signal is weak, but I can see their ubee router in my network window. Can i use the tcpip stack to block it or can i configure zonealarm or some program. Thanks a lot

A:Can Win7 block a mac address

Unless you use an ad-hoc network of some kind, I'm pretty sure they would need to go through a router that you are both connected to. You can employ MAC filters on a router pretty easily, on your computer it may be more difficult.

a few things: the cmc media discs you are using are pretty bad according to this:

update nero - it's at version 6.6 now

try burning at a lower speed

Can someone tell me how to find a programs IP address so it cannot "call home". I tried blocking it with a firewall, but it still manages to "call home". For example, when using TuneUP Utilities 2010.

Thanks guys!

A:Finding a program's IP address to block

Use a firewall like Comodo or whatever you like. When a program tries to call home, firewall should detect the outbound connection and notify you if you want to allow or block it.

Is it possible to block emails from everyone else, except the ones listed in your addesss book? I couldn't find an option to do that. Hotmail has a feature to block mail except those on your contact list.
YOu'd figure OE has something as well.

I use OE 6.00.29 WinXP

I am tired of receiving those spam mails advertising some kind of stupid stock alert.
I also use Norton anti spam,. It used to block these, but it seems like they are now coming to my regular Inbox, instead of Norton's anti spam bnox.

The mails contain an image, along with regular text to fool the filters.
Thanks in advance,

A:Block all but your address book entries.
