Silent blocking of applications in Windows


#1

Hi. This is related to the GREAT tutorial at https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/8739/restrict-users-to-run-only-specified-programs-in-windows-7/ . I want to allow just few applications to run. My OS is Windows 10 Pro. I’m using the GP method and it works fine.

But is it possible to block other applications silently, without the restrictions message? Or, is it possible to find out which exact applications got blocked and triggered the restrictions message? Thanks a lot and best regards.

Remove the application.

Wonder if there are apps out there (preferably free versions) that allow for easy app whitelisting - instead of monkeying around the Registry each time?
