You can use the program Netlimiter to limit the speed of downloading in particular programs (e.g. bittorrent, emule, ...)

Efficient way to get backups off site to Azure

This user guide provides instructions on how to deploy and configure both a StoneFly Scale Out NAS Enterprise Cloud Drive virtual machine and Veeam Cloud Connect in the Microsoft Azure Cloud.

I'm using only Netlimiter. You can limit the traffic on particular TCP port (upload or download)

Netlimiter 2 could possibly deserve to your purposes.

You may need to be more specific in your terms here...

1. disable the network connections (no downloading)
2. disable all incoming network connections (no downloading)

Do you want the kids to be able to see the internet?  Do you want the kids to be able to see webpages?  All webpages "download" to the browser to be able to be read.

If you don't want the kids to be able to download anything permamently, then use any of the LiveCD OS's floating around, PCLinux is one of my favorites but there are others.  They basically run off a CD and the kids can do NOTHING to the OS or the system, all the system is stored in RAM and goes POOF when the machine is rebooted.

For commercial products, McAfee has good internet controls on what can come through the system.  There are controls built into most browsers on this issue, but they can be gotten around by savvy kids.

If you are using Internet Explorer and you are simply wanting to prevent files from being downloaded, then you can do the following:

Open Internet Explorer

Click Tools >> Internet Options >> Security tab >> Custom Level button

Scroll down to where it says "Downloads" and select the Disable radio button for downloading files.

Hit the appropriate OK buttons.

Note:  You will have to be logged on with administrative rights to make these changes.

You can use this software to monitor what pages are your kids viewing and then forbid undesired pages. http://www.controlkids.com/features.html

If you don't want them to download via other programs (DC++, bittorent, etc.), you can block particular ports in firewall.
