You will have to use the MPF feature on the ASA to block the GoToMyPC traffic.

Configure the policy-map type like this


policy-map type inspect http GotoMyPC_HTTP


match request uri regex _default_GoToMyPC-tunnel "machinekey"

drop-connection log

match request uri regex _default_GoToMyPC-tunnel_2 "[/\\]erc[/\\]Poll"

drop-connection log
