What ports need to be closed on my company's firewall to prevent users from playing the Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 games?

We need a way of insuring that none of our employees play any games while they are at work.

They're most likely just programs installed on the computer, which has nothing to do with your firewall.

If you're in a domain environment you can set some options in Group Policy, but only sure fire way is to remove the games from the computers.

Yes as stated this has nothing to do with the firewalls. You really have two options.

1. Use add remove programs, add remove windows components to uninstall the game on each of the machines.

2. User a group policy to block the specific exe's for these programs. This can be done in group policy under user config | admin templates | system | policy | dont run specified windows applications. Then just add the executables names.
