  • Hi Felyjos,

    No, they are two different products, what I mean is you can also use Software Restriction Policies like Marc said to control software installations, sorry for the confusion.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for the post.

    No, FCS cannot be used to restrict software installation. http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/Forefrontedgegeneral/thread/98758170-bc2b-4840-9e55-d2686998e77d

  • Hello Nick,

    The thread you refered if for Forefront TMG not Forefront Client Security?

    Are the two products the same? or is it the usage of Applocker you would like to recommend as well..

    Thanks,

    Dom
