    How to block a network user from using certain p2p programs?

    On the wireless network at home, we've one user who is addicted to limewire. The users laptop is flooded with viruses, and I'm the one who gets the computer to fix. Last time I had my hands on it, AVG pulled up over 250 problems. I figure its limewire that is the problem, though no matter how many times I tell the user this, they keep on reinstalling the software. I've tried setting them up with other software but it seems that the users on these sites aren't into the similar files they crave. Is there something I can do to block them using limewire? I've blacklisted the default ports, but to no avail.

    Thanks.
