      Well, you can probably discard "Software Restriction" policies; these prevent particular programs running, not particular data types from being accessed.

      What I suggest you do is block these incoming filetypes at the firewall, and implement FSRM (File Services Resource Management) which is found in Windows Server 2003 R2. This will enable you to police the storage of certain filetypes on your file servers.

      You could also remove Windows Media Player from your workstation build, and make sure that users are not workstation admins and can therefore not install most software. Block the installation of certain popular media players and I think you're starting to convince the user base you really don't want media being accessed on your network. Back all of this up with a good, solid, robust IT Usage Policy and you're about airtight.

              If they're admins, I don't know a way to help you - sorry.

                What you really want to do, is to have a chat with your manager and draft an acceptable user policy or company IT policy. That is, a paper policy, not a GPO. In the policy you deny users the right to play music files. Your boss signs the policy, sends a copy of it to users and maybe you'll attach a copy on the company bullet board too.

                Afterwards, you check user workstations every now and then and if music files are found, have the users processed as per your IT policy.

                Don't try to control a social problem (slacking off on company time) with technology (software restrictions).

                  Agreed. Use technical weapons to supplement political weapons - far more effective with matters like this.
