    Block a a program from accessing sites other than what I specified.

    Hello, I am using spotify, and this evil program uses P2P to share music even though I pay decent money. So I'm trying to block its P2P connections. I need a program to stop it from connecting to websites other than what I specify. Little snitch does that, but it's Mac only. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Have a look at NetLimiter. I THINK you can use it to block connections by protocol.

How do I prevent a program from accessing the internet?
This used to be quite simple in Win7 but I can't figure out how to do it in 8. Perhaps I am being stupid but I hope somebody could tell me.
