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?

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.

Please check a guide on personal firewalls:
