I have a small home network with three PC's - one on Vista Business, one on Vista Home Premium and one on Windows XP.

What settings do I change on the Vista Business PC so that it blocks ALL internet access / traffic (thereby ensuring that I no longer get Windows updates, am not accessible to hackers, and cannot access email / internet)?

However, if possible, I would still like to be able to share the network Laser printer with all three PC's and also file transfers.

Thanks for any advice.

This can be done from your router. Simply have it block all outside access to the MAC address of the adapter you wish to block.
