Hey again.:D
I notice that win8.1 has much more background traffic on the network than win7.. So I wonder if any of you know about a good third-party firewall that can block outgoing domain names and IP addresses. It don't need not be a free firewall, even if free tastes good.;)
as example: example.com or *.example.com or 10.0.0.0 or whole net range: 10.0.0.0-10.0.0.255
And I want to specify the rules on one program or on five programs, or on all programs.

I have a hardware firewall to protect my computers against incoming attacks.

I'm also looking for an antivirus / malware program that can protect my file system. That doesn't take too much system resources.

I'm not really interested in some "all in one security solution". I would prefer if the programs is separated, if possible. :)

Best regards Marie:)

I also wonder how to completely disable IPV6 in win 8.1 (I don't have IPV6 capability to my ISP)
I see lots of activity with ipv6 addresses in the resource monitor. Even that I have checked IPV6 on my network card properties.
