If you are an admin, then at times you’d want to block a user on your network from accessing an application. You can download AppLocker, a freeware, using which you can easily block any application or program from executing.
Applocker has an interface which is very easy to use. You can add the application/s you want to block using the configure window:
Once you have added the application, to the AppLocker main window and select which applications you want to block and click on Save. The user won’t be able to run the applications which the administrator has locked.
Another beauty of the Applocker is that it does not include any service or an agent you don’t need to install it on the system you want to lock the applications. Keep the AppLocker in a common shared directory which, you as an admin have acces to, run it from that directory and lock the application on the system you want!!
This can play a major role in securing and enhancing the performance to your Terminal Server and workstations by preventing execution of chosen applications.
