Windows 7: Blocking background network accesses in Windows 7

Blocking background network accesses in Windows 7


I buy a data bundle to access the net on my computer from a mobile phone operator.

I pay per meg and I get so frustrated when some impertinent background program jumps on the network to download megs of data every time I connect using up my data minutes without my consent!

Iv tried turning off automatic Windows and antivirus updates, but still I dont know what is abusing my network connection every time I go online!

Is there any way I can block ALL network accesses except from the browser, for instant, so I can enjoy browsing without worrying about what may be raking up my data bill in the background?
