I have a very simple question. How can I configure my firewall to block Adobe Illustrator CC 2014 updates on Windows 7?

You will need to create a Windows Firewall rule. Go to Control Panel -> All Control Panel Items -> Windows Firewall. Click Advanced settings on the right-hand side, click Outbound rules on the left-hand side, then click New Rule on the right.

On the next window, make sure you have Program selected and click Next. Select the button for This program path: and click Browse. From here, you'll need to navigate to the .EXE file for Illustrator. It'll be under C:\Program Files (x86) (w/o the x86 if you're not running 64-bit Windows) and possibly within the Adobe sub-folder.

Once you've found the .EXE file, click Next, Block the connection, apply it to Domain/Private/Public networks, give it a name, and click Finish.

  • Thanks. I've blocked the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CC 2014\Adobe Ilustrator CC 2014.exe which is a Windows link to %ProgramFiles%\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CC 2014\Support Files\Contents\Windows\Illustrator.exe. This should do it. Thanks. – John Sonderson Nov 8 '14 at 19:41
