how do I block skype

I need to know how to firewall skype to keep my kids off it.

 

 I can find all kinds of information about the opposite, but I do not wish for my kids to video chat with perverts.

 

 Please tell me how to block skype.

 

 thank you

Re: how do I block skype

I would first make sure Skype is removed from the computer. Follow with the next steps to block Skypes web site.

 

Start Menu > Control Panel > Internet Options > Security Tab > Restricted Sites (Add www.skype.com)

 

You can also use Windows Help and Support program, found on every version of Windows and learn about Perental Controls for more security and restriction opptions.

Re: how do I block skype

Please read question again. He said FIREWALL not remove, not parental controls in windows either. That means it will not connect while he is not home. I would like to specify I need 2 different answers. 1 for on the same computer and 1 for a network wide multiple computer solution. If it is possible.
