Port blocking

Download Adaware 6. Update reference list and run full scan. Delete all objects found and restart PC. KMD and imesh will no longer work! Reinstallation of these ad supported programmes is not recommended.

Which ports on a router should be blocked?

Port blocking

You can't block Kazaa with just ports because it can chose ports at random and can use port 80 now and you don't want to block that one do you.

You have to use an application blocking software firewall to block the actual programs getting access - Something like ZoneAlarm - this you password protect the settings so they cannot be changed. Although if this is not on your PC and that user has admin access they can just remove the firewall.

Blocking just by port number cannot be done now. The software has evolved to be able to bypass router based firewalls that block by port number.

Just do a google search (and google groups search ) and you will find loads of articles on this.

Silly question time, but why not just simply remove them from your PC?
