Blocking P2P, Bittorent and file names

I have an ASA witihout the SSM module and I am having a difficult time with :

Blocking P2P & Bittorent - I followed this link

but it looks like it does nto work all the time if at all, I'm running 8.2 code on the ASA so I'm not sure if that makes a different at all.  What's the best way to block this trype of traffic on the ASA? I know the ASA does not hav a lot of access to these upper layers, what is the Cisco recommendation.

Blocking files - I followed this link but it does not work at all.

Even though this should block all .exe files I am still able to download .exe from teh Internet, am I missing something? I followed the example line by line, yet it doesn' t seem to work, any idea why?

If there's a specific file name that I would ilke to block from being downloaded, is that something the ASA can handle?

Any advise is apprecaited.
