I am using SelfControl on Mac, this app could disable the whole internet even when you reboot the system. So I am wondering if this is possible with Windows.

How can I block a win8 computer's access to internet(I mean, the whole internet) even when you reboot the computer? Do you have to edit your hosts or something?

  • Windows has Parental Controls builtin you can use.

  • @Ramhound That's the last resort, because that's so shameful. Oct 14, 2014 at 1:31
  • How is it shameful exactly

  • @Ramhound You need another guy to set a password to get the parent control work, unlike Self-Control, you can be your own master. Oct 14, 2014 at 1:39

This link references Windows 7, but it should work for Windows 8 as well: How can I restrict windows 7 to only use the local subnet, but block the internet


You should try SelfRestraint - I believe it is similar to that app and it is created for Windows OS.
