Greetings!
You need a firewall to do that. Are you using any firewall?

The freeware version of ZoneAlarm firewall from Zone Labs has support for outgoing traffic filtering:

dude, thanks for the info but i do not dare to try to install ZA once more.
I installed ZA and stopped the process for some reason. when I rebooted, I simply could not log on "Insufficient Disk Space". WTF? System restore didn't work either. I booted to backup OS on separate partition, deleted all ZA related files. Now I could log on but lots of services wouldn't start. I spent 5-6 hours and finally decided that I needed to reinstall the OS.

I do not mean to prove anyone wrong here and I have seen it being used a quite a few places but I guess it is not for me. Do not want to go through that nightmare again. Do you have another solution?
