Okay so I suggested installing the application whitelisting component but it would appear that it does't have that particular feature. I actually installed the AV version so maybe that's why it's different. If you don't wish to make use of it - I'd suggest uninstalling it.

I've done some research and it seems that what you need is a security application that can block the file based on it's MD5 hash. Usually you could create a rule using Software Restriction Policies but in Windows 7 Home Premium this isn't possible.

Your best bet is to ask for help with how to do this - possibly start a new post.

I did manage to find software that can block files using custom rules based on a file's MD5 hash but nothing that was free and that would work with most existing security software.

Another option might be to create Standard User accounts and use Parental Controls to specify the files that can launch.

I thought it would come to that. I think there may be a performance hit with that approach. Every exe will have the hash calculated. If it's a special setup without the myriad user programs running in the background then it may be acceptable.
