    I use to have an Emsisoft security suite that had a neat feature that allowed me to toggle on and off my Internet connection, completely kill it. Since Emsisoft stopped developing that program, I really miss that feature.

    Does anyone know of a small app that will simply toggle the Internet on and off for me? Yes, I know that it can be done manually but that takes 3-4 steps.

    Thanks much, Acadia

    Of course you can do that easily with any fw or fw control program, but if you want a dedicated app just for that NetDisabler from Sordum works very well for me

    windows can do with batch or some modern with powershell (ps)

    emsisoft is using nothing else

    or get Autoit, this part of script and compile it to exe
    https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/165837-enabledisable-network-connection/

    you need to create a button and then call the function
    Code:
    NetWorkEnableDisable(NetWorkName [, Enable_Disable])
    networkname is important, enable_disable true or false (default=true)
