    Hi,

    Can WSA be configured to work as a n Anti-Executable? If so how to configure it like that?

    Best Wishes,

    I think this is the setting that you want.

    Yes it is but lots of pop-ups though! ;)

    That's still not really an anti-executable though. It's WSA in whitelist mode...

    ...If anything I'd call it an anti-NEW executable.

    Use sofwtare restriction policy with WSA to get the effect you're really longing for.

    This guide here is a good one: http://www.mechbgon.com/srp/

    Software Restriction Policies (SRP) are not for everyone, I suggest you do a bit of research first so you can understand what is involved and decide if it is for you or not. It is a very effective way of securing a PC however. There are plenty of threads about SRP here on Wilders posted by people with far more knowledge than I. There is also a neat little program called PGS by Wilder's member Sully which can enable SRP for unsupported versions of Windows.

    Hope this helps!

    it says 'You can't use Software Restriction Policy if you have Windows XP Home Edition and Windows Vista and Windows 7 Home and Starter versions either'....so I can't use it on my xp......but it's good for my win 7 pcs.....so thx a lot.......also the guide said if I cannot use SRP on XP then I can either use Limited account or Sandboxie or DropMyRights...........since I got sbie....I'll use it on xp...thx again......
