Portable Firewall

as you can assume from the title i'm looking for a portable firewall to use at college.

funnily enough, the network administration happens to be a tad lame and can run imported .exe files as a standard user.
i've given up looking around via google and all im after is a firewall i can use to block a running application installed on my user account.
vb applications run pretty well on the network and i have looked and found some cool vb firewall projects but unfortunately i'm not that advanced in vb and the ones i found weren't finalised.
i have no doubts that the application would probably override the firewall but it's worth a try.

would appreciate any recommendations. :)

where do I begin..... so many misconceptions and lack of information provided. Lets start off by getting a better explanation of "imported" exe files.

Are the users admins, power users... are these windows systems or *nix?

Are you looking for something to use on your personal computer, or when your roaming around the campus using other pc's?

As a side note, I am a security person who would not be very happy with you, if I found you running said firewall. It would make me wonder what your trying to hide from me.
