Hi Snehal,

You will need to have access to the Server (Domain Controller). I also found one of your Threads with the same concern and you have never replied. It will be nice if you can post an update this time so that we can further assist you.
Open up GP Management Editor expand Policies>> Windows Settings>> Security Settings>> Software Restriction Policies, fiddle with the Security Levels and Additional Rules settings.
