    Have you tried defining them as Applications ?
    I don't have Windows machine in front of me at the moment, but there is an option to add/remove filetypes that it can control. It's not within the actual "allowed locations/etc" part, but one "folder" back, if you right-click it gives a list of what is controlled.

    Sorry to revive this old post but..

    I noticed that there is a Default Security Level that specifies Unrestricted. If I make this restricted then unrestrict the C:\ path this would disallow exes from any other path e.g "homeshare, a:, anyother networkpath,"

    I am wrong or is there a price to pay?
