Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Anti-Social is a simple but useful application that disables access to popular Social services (e.g. Facebook, Twitter) and hence increase your productivity. It's a subset of Freedom.

While Freedom got Windows version, Anti-Social doesn't.

Anyone knows of an alternative for Anti-Social on Windows ?

@Andrew Heath: AFAIK, Self-Control is only for Linux. –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar Sep 8 '11 at 11:36

There is Cold Turkey.

Cold Turkey is a free productivity program that you can use to temporarily block yourself off of popular social media sites, addicting websites and games.

Alternatively, you can use LeechBlock addon if you are using Firefox.

LeechBlock is a simple productivity tool designed to block those time-wasting sites that can suck the life out of your working day. All you need to do is specify which sites to block and when to block them.

If it really worked, you couldn't come here to say thank you ;) –  MSalters Sep 8 '11 at 13:30
@MSalters: it meant to block access to social services only, not superuser.com man : ) –  Sim Sep 9 '11 at 1:58
Current Cold Turkey 0.8 doesn't work on Windows 8, despite what the home page says - it runs but doesn't actually block anything. Anyone know how to fix? OR an alternative –  MGOwen Sep 27 '13 at 5:00
