This can often be done at the hardware level, but that is NIC dependent, i.e., the method to disable will vary widely.

Doing it in software is OS dependent.  Even within the Windows family, the method of disabling varies.

Do you want to do this for a particular box or for whatever box the program is running on, regardless of NIC model and OS?

> in a box where the program will shutdown and start the NIC on OS windows.

This is generally not available where requirements involve heterogenous Windoze environments. Namely, before the Windows UI is sufficiently stable for user access, the stack (including NIC) also has to be stable, a networking prerequisite if you will. Thus, all the times peole experience messages such as "you must shutdown (or restart) computer to complete the process".  Even newer OS, where there are times that the messagebox does not appear, there are substantial networking needs that still require the reboot (not just a logoff) to complete the rebuilding process.

Depending on application need, this is possible, where several restrictions can be applied to requirements. But in general, not all that feasible. Also has many OS dependencies, so any desire for cross platform compatibility must head to back-burner.

Should work on common nic's any platform.
Only probs s/b if NIC runs separate intelligence independently.  You might check bios to disable loading Windows from the network.
