A new tutorial titled How to create an Application Whitelist Policy in Windows was added by Lawrence Abrams. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

In Windows it is possible to configure two different methods that determine whether an application should be allowed to run. The first method, known as blacklisting, is when you allow all applications to run by default except for those you specifically do not allow. The other, and more secure, method is called whitelisting, which blocks every application from running by default, except for those you explicitly allow.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.

There's an extra character at the end of "How to only allow certain Windows Applications to Run<". Also, you should add that secpol.msc is only available on Windows 7 Pro, Ultimate, Entreprise, Windows 8/8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro, Entreprise. Windows 7 Home Premium, and Windows 8/8.1 standard don't have it.
