Written by Wyatt Surrey

Since 1991, people had seen many improvements when the World Wide Web (WWW) was introduced to the general public. Various types of media are available to connect to the Internet, such as routers, modems, smartphones, etc. Now the Internet is mixed with our lives and we cannot survive without it. Whether it’s a modern school, bank, shop or our upbringing, we need an active internet connection everywhere.

The internet is essential for all of us, but for some reason you may want to stop all types of internet access on your PC. For example, you might want to stop your child from playing online games. You’re doing an important project that doesn’t require an internet connection and you don’t want to be disturbed by notifications. It can also happen that your PC is infected with virus / malware and you want to work offline.

There could be several reasons for blocking your PC from accessing the internet. Net Disabler is a freeware tool that allows you to easily enable or disable your internet connection on a Windows PC.
