  • Block it from what? You want to prevent it from running? Prevent it from accessing the network? – schroeder May 25 '15 at 3:20

If it's a computer (or group of computers) managed by Active Directory you can do this with Group Policy.

The settings is under Computer Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > System Services.

Block Service

If it's just on one computer you can just disable the service (Start > Run > Services.mmc) and change the Startup Type to Disabled.
