Do you have a router?  If so you can block these ports on the router to disbale Yahoo:

If not you should be able to filter these ports in the TCP/IP properties of the network connection. Like this:

Also there are several 3rd party tools which can block this (not free):

Hope this helps.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Try ussing ipsec also.
The best is to use block the ports on the router as suggested by gidds99

gidds99>> I think he meant firewall of windows Xp service pack 2.
