Windows Spy Blocker is a single executable to block spying and tracking on Windows system. The approach of this project is to capture and interpret network traffic based on a set of tools. Depending on the interactions between services and source or destination of traffic, rules are created and sorted by assignment. .

 

Most malicious content is delivered through the information superhighway nowadays, so it’s highly recommended to take your security measures seriously. An antivirus solution alone can barely keep up with everything going on, that’s why programs like Windows Spy Blocker want to make things easier by blocking access to potentially harmful domains.

Intuitive descriptions guide you along the way
The application saves you the time and effort required to go through a setup process, so you benefit from all it has to offer from the moment download is done. This allows you to carry it on a removable thumb drive in case you want to add Firewall rules to other computers than your own.


Management options are delivered through a command-line interface, but this gives you little to no accommodation problems, especially because of the detailed descriptions found along the way. Menus are comfortable, and you can always recall menu commands in case they’re out of sight or unsure on what to do next.

View rule status, install, and remove
There are a couple of default functions you can use to enhance the security of your computer. On the one hand, the application can deploy a set of Firewall rules dedicated to Windows 7, 8.1, and 10, which block access to various domains which are potentially harmful. You can view the status of the rules at any moment and even remove them.


On the other hand, there’s the NCSI (Network Connectivity Status Indicator) function, which can deploy Windows Spy Blocker or Microsoft NCSI rules. These can also be removed on demand, and there’s also a function with which to test your Internet connection.


Last but not least, the dev section comes in handy for analyzing results and log files. Although devoid of any particular usage on its own, it’s dedicated for working with Proxifier, Sysmon, and Wireshark if installed on your computer. These tools can be used to extract log data, and there’s also a general differences analyzer to be used with results from all previously mentioned third-party tools.
