Can the Win 7 Firewall be configured to block programs from accessing the internet

I was doing that with my McAfee software (which came with my AT&T Service) but AT&T isn't compatible with 64 bit OS's yet (WTF!) And I tried to Download ZoneAlarm's free firewall, but they don't support Win 7...

....Sooo, after a long explanation - I need to block certain programs from accessing the internet on their own - Can I do that with Win7?

Thanks for any help!

Yes you can. Open Control Panel\Windows Firewall\Advanced Settings\Outbound Rules...

Create a rule for which ever program you need with the appropriate settings.

You could also try something like Comodo CIS which works well under 7.

I agree. You can set the Windows firewall as Quill has stated. You can also grab Comodo here for free. Nice and easy firewall program with very good ratings.

or just use Firewall App Blocker (Portable freeware)
