I need to block an application from execution and create an override for the rule


  • I have tried creating Software Restriction Policy, however the app is trying to run as a system on the startup. The GPO is user based and allows the execution.

    What would be the way around this? Do i need to create a computer side as well?

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    In my opinion, you could try to configure Software Restriction Policy for computers instead of users.

    In addition, to achieve your goal, you could use AppLocker in GPO.

    For more information about AppLocker, you could refer to the article below.

    Best Regards,
