I have read through the tutorial on How to create an Application Whitelist Policy in Windows, which is intriguing as a methodology to alleviate the chances of being infiltrated by ransomware.  Once the change is implemented, can new or updated applications be downloaded and installed?

Sorry, I should have included this information.  The operating system we use is Windows 10 Pro.  I have volunteered to provide IT support for our organization (7 employees some of whom are part time).  We have setup administrative and standard user accounts on each computer and use Microsoft Office 365 plus a couple of other applications such as QuickBooks.

 

What I have learned is self taught.  In any case, a local IT firm has suggested that we go the whitelist approach outlined in the tutorial.  The procedure looks straight forward, meaning I might be able to implement the procedure myself.  However, I wonder if I might be missing something.  Ergo, my questions regarding the installation of new application and/or software updates.

Thanks for the info.

I'll move your topic to an appropriate forum, where people who may be able to advise will be more likely to see it.
