How do i stop downloading on my network?Acess Control List wont be effective cos i want people to be able to surf the net but i need to prevent downloading of softwares and other stuffs cos it slows down my network.

The two are synonymous. Surfing the web IS downloading material.
What you could block instead is INSTALLING anything. Check your firewall settings.
Another way is to make sure that only a system administrator has an administrator account. Normal user accounts are usually prevented from installing anything.
