I think you'll have to elaborate on what you want to prevent.  Using a web browser is 
'file sharing', as is much of computer communication, in that the user's computer 
requests a file, in this case an html file, from another computer, the web server.

If you're talking about bittorrent traffic, you could block ports 6881-6999 on your 
external firewall.
