    Blocking the program depends on your firewall. What firewall your are using?

    And please don't call me Mr.Archer.

    Hello Ahmed, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like, you could set your 3G wireless network to be a metered connection in Windows 8. Afterwards, you could turn off the various "Download over metered connections" settings (bottom of link below) in Windows 8 to help prevent going over and extra charges on your 3G.
    Hope this helps some,
    Shawn
