I love to program, tinker with things and generally a curious person. My career started with developing DOS TSRs in x86 Assembler. My daily work includes programming in Delphi (Windows), Ruby on Rails (Linux) and Java (Android).

My company Hagel Technologies makes network bandwidth monitor DU Meter and other software. I sometimes write in my blog.

comment Can I block ALL file downloads in Chrome?
Actually, this solution actually works, to my huge surprise. (Chrome honors IE security zones, as far as downloads are concerned). This is confusing to the user (file downloads, and then Chrome says "download failed"), and can be subverted by the user by editing the registry, but this solution does block ALL downloads in Chrome, without affecting anything else.

Thank you. Unfortunately, Windows Family Safety: 1. Does not specifically do what I wanted (to block all file downloads). 2. Does not work with domain accounts at all. UAC should be enabled of course, though, and not only for kids...

@avirk: I'm aware of this "feature". I'd rather not send every URL my kids visits to Microsoft, moreover it does not appear to be working very well (msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/…;, and it does not support domain accounts, and it does not have a feature I asked specifically about (block all downloads).
