Cold Turkey will temporarily block you off of social media sites, addicting websites, games and even programs!
Imagine how fast you could do your work without all those distractions!Download
Use the default list of popular sites to block, or add any number of your own to the list.
Cold Turkey can block programs too! Just browse to the executable file to add it to the list.
Cold Turkey's blocking features are computer-wide, which will affect all users and browsers on the computer.
Cold Turkey can be scheduled to block you in intervals of a half an hour, up to a full week!
Cold Turkey can't be stopped easily as it is not stoppable from the system tray or the task manager.
In addition to being free and charitable, the source code is available for everyone to see!
Although this program does a pretty good job physically blocking you from distractions, it also changes the way you think when you are working on your computer. You will find that when being blocked, you will have more motivation and pay more attention to your work, since there won't be distractions available to you.
Cold Turkey can run on Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista and updated versions of Windows XP, 2000 and NT. Microsoft .NET version 4.0 is required to run Cold Turkey. The installer will install it for you if you don't already have it.
I am looking at the possibility of making Mac and mobile versions. I may also expand Cold Turkey by making versions for parents and small businesses. If you are interested to hear more, follow me on Twitter.
No. Cold Turkey is not bundled with any other software. I also don't like ads, so you won't see any of those either.
Cold Turkey is both open source and 100% user supported. If you would like to support me and its development, feel free to donate when you download the software, or here.
Well, you won't be able to end the block from the task manager, changing the system time, or by trying to uninstall it while it's blocking.
Yes, Cold Turkey is programmed the same way anti-virus software is programmed. There are ways to stop it, but they require you know a little about computers. For the average user, this program should be more than enough to do the job.
If the installer tries to install the .NET framwork for you, it's because you don't have version 4.0 of the .NET framework. This framework is needed for the program to run.
