Windows 7: Block Freeware to access the Internet

Block Freeware to access the Internet

There are a lot of Freeware for years not change to Shareware!
For strict security measures against this kind of software, I suggest to block it to access the Web.
For updates, you get them manually.
Simple idea that I practice long ago.
It's your choice.

What kind of software are you referring to?

What is the difference between freeware and shareware? What are the dangers?

Thanks for posting, anyway.
