Deepak-
Have you considered using Software Restriction Policy in whitelist mode?
That is, set the default level to disallowed and then only allow a specified
pre-approved set of executables?

Hi Friends,

I am in a great problem. I would really appreciate if anyone can 
help me at the earliest:

Problem: I want to block some executables like access.exe, 
publisher.exe and communicator.exe using group policy.

Now the problem is i can't use Software Restriction Policy using 
hash rule as the hash will change everytime microsoft patches or 
release service pack for office 2007.

Secondly if i use Software Restriction Policy using path rule. The 
user can simply copy the exe to alternate location and can run the 
program with ease.

So,i would really appreciate if anyone can help me to solve this 
issue, as the user can't open the above mentioned exe from 
anywhere. I want to implement it using group policy. A custom 
ADM/ADMX will also work... Please guide me if possible...

Waiting for your reply...
Deepak Kumar...
