How to configure a Win7 not internet-connected ?

We have some Win7 computers inside our LAN solely used for connecting to our internal file server to run a single application. They don't need to connect to Internet and don't have CD drive, etc for user to install anything.
My question is, how to configure these computers to isolate from Internet so no virus or hacker's threat at all?



It might be easier to set up a VLAN for these machines and do not let the VLAN segment out to the internet.

This would allow you to connect them all at once for inevitable updating.

If on your LAN, manage the AV application from the server and that should handle virus protection.

Set a static IP on those machines and block those IPs at the firewall.

You could still install software via a flash drive.



Static IP addressing is a pain the butt over the long term, so avoid a static IP solution if you can.



If you just want to block the users from getting online, setup a fake proxy server address in the network settings or in Internet Explorer connection settings. The computer will not be able to get online, but will have access to the rest of your network.



Again, the goal is to prevent virus or hacker's threat from internet. Would blocking the users from reaching out to internet pretty much prevent the threat??
