Well, my guess is that you are not whitelisting everything you need to then.
You can also exclude .vbs file types in your Designated File Types rule.

Hi Darren,

I have even tried the whitelist mode. But doing so blocks all exe 
and even it doesn't allow to run vbs (scripts) which are necessary 
to run.

There may be some exe's which user should run.. So, allowing this 
policy doesnot works...

Thanks...
