Thats a big question..... ISA is not an anti-virus product and doesn't pretend to be. For example, many 'unwanted' applications can use port 80  but it is highlu unlikely that you would want to block this port.

The best you can do is to define a system security policy on paper and then apply that policy with a good anti-virus package such as Sophos or such like. ISA will block all incoming traffic by default whilst allowing all outgoing traffic.

You can amend the default allow all protocols from internal to external by right-clicking the rule and selecting properties. Change the allowed protocols from all outbound to selected protocols and choose the ones you want to allow.

To protect against web applications etc, right click the allow rule and select configure http. Amend the content types etc as needed. (The configure httpis rule-specific so amendments here ONLY affect this one particular rule. If you have other Allow rules, you will need to configure the http/ftp/rpc for these also if you want the same restrictions to apply).)
