    quote=Nonapeptide;157344]Good find, I didn't know about that one. One teensy caveat from the GPO's explanation:


    So you'll need to block CMD and task manager too. If you can't do that for whatever reason, maybe software restriction polices would work better? I just tried to find if SRPs block software even if it's launched via CMD or task manager but came up empty.[/quote]

      A hash rule restriction should take care of that. Here's a Microsoft KB article about software restriction policies. Plenty of other material abounds; just Google the term "software restriction policy".
