Default I want a one-click network disabler

The title says it all. Anybody know where I can find one for a 'plug and pray' system?

There are lots of small, free programs that call themselves "Internet Toggle" and the like. Search on that.

The question is do you want a program that will only disable one adaptor or all adaptors?

You can do it manually on Windows 8-10 by displaying the Network Connections window:
Right click on Start menu button
Select Network Connections
Select the adaptor you want to manage.
At this point you get the toggle you want by clicking on the button "Disable this network device" or "Enable this network device"

a lot of newer computers have a network toggle built in, so it is a hardware toggle

maybe you have one and don't know it? I never found the need to use it :S If I don't want internet, usually I'm not at computer so I turn it off
