any neat quick ways to sort out issues with portable apps? we are currently blocking the location they save data to at the moment which works but is different per app. Is there a good way of blocking them all in one go?

You need to think about implementing Software Restriction Policy in the user configuration of a GPO. This'll help greatly in the long run.

You could also try File Server Resource Manager and USBDLM, USBDLM forces any USB to use specified drives and then File Server Resource Manager to block file types to whatever locations you set so specified USB, Shared or C or home directories, you can also set File Resource Manager to Email if someone trys to save or run a blocked file, it emails basic users details as well as File type etc.

Hi, sorry for delay in reply. We have students running these from there user areas, there users block .exe and other program files but portable apps still work, if we block the folder it creates when used then it wont run however there are 100's of portable apps and browsers are a real worry.
