Blocking an application during a set time period on a terminal server

    Question

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to set up a group policy to temporarily block an application (Outlook) during a set time of the working day? This would be on a terminal server (2008 R2 Enterprise x64 SP1). 

    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Not through standard mechanisms. You could create a scheduled task that
    kills outlook.exe, or you can create a WMI task for Instance Creation
    Events of Win32_Process and kill the instance if the time slot is exceeded.
