Using the firewall to prevent phoning home

Posted: 09-17-2006, 12:04 AM
How can I set the firewall to grant current (default Vista settings)
internet access to all currently installed programs, but ask for
confirmation before granting any newly installed programs outbound internet
access in the future (so I can prevent newly installed programs from phoning
home, but not break any programs I already have installed)?

Add the programs in the Exceptions Control for which you want to allow
connection. If Firewall is on, by default, it asks for any new program
installed to Allow or Block.
