  • how would you guys block portable Apps like Skype,firefox,Kproxy and gtalk etc etc ?

    Hi,
    how would you guys block portable Apps like Skype,firefox,Kproxy and gtalk etc etc ?
    it just runs from USB / Local HDD .
    obviously I could just block all USB ports but is there a better way?

    Applocker, with a list of allowed apps only is probably the best solution

    Alternatively, port blocking to prevent the app communicating with the rest of the world?

      Viewfinity is another application you could use to block them

        What AV suite do you use? Many of them now offer app lock and device lock features.
