Correct. If you add notepad.exe to the list of allowed programs, then anything named notepad.exe would be allowed to be run by the user(s) unless also on the list of disallowed programs.

If the .exe is in a Program Files or Windows type system folder, then a standard user will not be able to rename the .exe anyways.

This is not for malware protection though. It's only to help allow or prevent users from being able to run programs (.exe files) that you the administrator specify.

Hello Kanoy,

You would be able to edit them by clicking on the Show button, then doing what's in the yellow tip box under step 5 in OPTION ONE to either type over or delete a listed program.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
