Please can anybody advise if there is a way to selectively block IP`s from accessing Windows XP. I have a block call facility on my telephone and can block selected Emails myself. What I want is a simple means of blocking selected IP`s from accessing my PC. A user friendly method of blocking IP`s and unblocking them.

Not particularly interested in packaged software, but will listen if it is free. I had in mind a method where by I could create an internal tweak that I could add or delete IP`s as needed.

These IP`s are not necessarily Malware, they are addresses I do not want to access my PC. All operational websites have this facility, even Forums.

If the procedure for doing this is complicated, then I will withdraw as I am not a Geek and have no wish to become one, but the result may still be of value to other readers.

Many thanks

You might be able to do this with your firewall.

Both are free.
