Locked

System Policy Editor

By grouchyy ·
When I select the option to "Run only allowed Windows applications" I am supposed to select add and type in the application.

I have tried several ways to do this and I still get locked out of all the applications. Say I want to give access onlyto MSWord. Would I type:
"c:\Program Files...Winword.exe" given thats where it resides on their pc? How would I make this work?

Thanks

You have to know exactly where the program resides. Actually, using this part of Poledit often causes serious issues. This is mainly because Office products call upon other Office components to get jobs done. You would have to specify all of these programs in your "Allow only ..." statements. Needless to say, it becomes very hairy quickly.

No mater where reside the programs (the path) but you must enter all exe, com, bat, cmd files from a computer (file name). Also the files referring to your OS. List of the Allowed applications represents the app that will can be run on that computer.

You have to specify all system programs as well as the apps that you wnat to run. It works great when you get it setup. Start with a basic machine that is only the os 95/98/nt then open the task manager(nt) or ctl-alt-del (9 and see what process is running. you will need each of these. now add a app and do the same check.
