I can stop it with transparent proxying.  Doing transparent proxying
forces all machines regardless of browser setting...through the proxy. 
The proxy server must be at the "choke" point of the network.  Works like
a charm and makes it easy for me since I never have to set proxy settings
on browsers or anything.
