Or for the S.O. and for the firewall that EXE doesn't exist and PROG.EXE won't be break from the Windows Firewall?

Hello pipppero2007,

You can try the Internet Restriction feature in Sandboxie: ... s#internet

Depending on your Firewall, you may need to change different settings. If you do not trust the program, try installing one you do trust, and then see which settings allow you to make it work (if any).
See these threads for more info: ... +exception ... 11&t=21539
