    I would like to block system script hosts as a additional security prevention.
    So far I have blocked Cscript.exe, Wscript.exe, Powershell.exe and Powershell_ise.exe. I will leave cmd.exe as too many programs are using it.

    Are there any other script hosts that are present on Windows 7 default install?

    Also conhost.exe?

    Yes, that one can't be disabled also. Windows and csrss.exe are using it frequently - every time cmd is run.

    Thnx for suggestion.
