    What do you mean by "exploitable processes"? It's nor more exploitable than the command prompt. In fact, it has significant security above and beyond what Command Prompt offers to prevent exploits

    Powershell or WSH are completely useless for common users, so there is no reason to keep it available.

    but with Process Lasso, you can automatically terminate any powershell process or script interpreter.
    under the options menu you have "configure disallowed processes", and and after adding your list of processes, you should put a tick in "match wildcards"
