Windows 7: Disabling program from acessing web

Disabling program from acessing web

Hi, This is my first post so don't eat me alive if I am posting this in the wrong area.

Recently I dug up one of my older games that I used to love as a kid. The game was one of the first online games, and then offline games when you couldn't get online. However, I managed to make it work on windows 7, but every time I get on it will spend 5-10 minutes trying to ping the dedicated server that no longer exists.

My real question is there a way that I can make it so just that one program cannot access the web, if I can pull that off then I won't have to wait a year to play each game. Thanks ahead of time!

If I'm not mistaken the windows firewall should have prompted you whether to allow a program to access the internet the first time it runs.

Anyway, you can block it yourself. Click Start -> type "firewall" at the Start Menu search (don't press enter yet) and select Windows Firewall with Advanced Security. Add a new outbound rule, select that program's executable file, and select block.
