Stop "legitimate spyware" from leaking unknown information from your computer!



With all the spyware flooding the internet these days it’s nearly impossible to be positive that your personal data is truly safe. Software Candy’s Net CeaseFire helps you stop invasions by disconnecting the Internet access on your computer with a single click. Plain and simple, it is an Internet switch.

Even legitimate websites can stay connected to your computer through cookies and spyware, but what about those with more sinister motives? Trojans, hackers, malware, viruses, and worms are rampant in the digital world. Why take chances with your personal finances and safety? Identity theft is a huge problem today and once your privacy has been compromised it can be hard to get it back.

The best firewalls and other security measures can fail under an attack which is why Software Candy has created an internet lock that disables all unauthorized Internet access before it starts. Net CeaseFire is a powerful weapon in your Defensive Computing arsenal.

Total Internet security couldn’t be simpler. Software Candy’s fast and secure download takes just minutes to install and gives you total control over your computer’s Internet access. Like all of Software Candy’s innovative products, Net CeaseFire is designed to do just one thing and do it well, completely block internet access when you don’t want it, and you don’t need to be a computer programmer to use it.

Before you access those important files or plug in a USB stick containing personal information just use Net CeaseFire’s Toggle Internet feature to completely turn off the Internet with the push of a button, effectively closing the curtain on spyware in one easy step. When you want to go back online simply Toggle Internet back and your Internet access is instantly restored.

Net CeaseFire is perfect for both homes and offices and will not block your network connections to a shared file server. Keep your private life private and your business’s financial documents secure from hidden risks.

New! Version 2.0 retains your choice even after you logged off. If you purchased version 1.0 less than a year ago, you can download this new version for FREE.

Note: Restarting your computer automatically unblocks the Internet connection.


The beauty of this wizard is that you don't have to follow any complex instructions. Once you download this app (keep it on your desktop or in an easy-to-find folder), you double-click it, click the Next button on the installation wizard and Voila! You will now see a green icon in your system tray, indicating the state of your Internet connection.

When you start Windows and you logon into your account, NetCeaseFire will start auotmatically, with the Internet always Unblocked:




To block the Internet, right-click the green NetCeaseFire icon in the system tray and select 'Toggle Internet":




NetCeaseFire's Systray will turn red, indicating Blocked Internet connection:



To unblock Internet connection, right-click the red NetCeaseFire icon in the system tray and select 'Toggle Internet":




 NetCeaseFire's Systray will turn green again, indicating Unblocked Internet connection:




Note: Restarting your computer automatically unblocks the Internet connection.  

Note: no desktop icons will be installed, as to avoid cluttering your desktop. Instead, you will find a Software Candy entry in your Start Menu, which allows you to uninstall it, should you ever want to do this.



Occasionally, when you're online, something suspicious happens (for example, your hard-drive being accessed for an unusually long time). You then want to block any Internet activity that might be occurring but without dropping the connection (if you're on dial-up) or without unplugging the cable (if you receive Internet via DSL or Cable). Some personal firewall provide the ability to disconnect the Internet completely, but even then this function is not easily accessible. Sometimes, the firewall itself can spy on you... 

Also, whether you have a firewall like the one that comes with Windows XP or a stronger firewall that blocks undesired outgoing traffic, it is important to note that no firewall can block all types of spyware. Whether you have an antivirus firewall or other virus protection in the form of a Windows anti virus or anti malware, it is important to note that no virus scanner can detect all types of PC virus or spyware. Even when your computer is updated to the latest antivirus 2010, it must allow legitemate traffic out (such as your web browsing and email). Some spyware use these ports in disguise to send "home" whatever they want to send.

This is where we step in and offer a pinpoint solution for this particular problem. You simply right-click the NetCeaseFire icon in the system tray and select 'Toggle Intenet". That's it.
