    Just curious, but according to the tutorial:

    Use AppLocker to Block Microsoft Store Apps in Windows 10

    did you also create a default rule to allow all packaged apps as well ? ( As far as I understand, the specific deny rule will still take precedence over the rest of the allow-all rule ).

    ( Also, just in case you didn't know, Internet Explorer can be disabled through "Apps & Features" if you don't need IE it for any other purpose. )

    Sorry, I didn't realise that applocker applies to Enterprise and Education Versions only, as I can't restrict any programs using applocker on Windows 10 Pro, and I don't have any Enterprise or Education versions to test anything on.

    If used according to all the tutorials I have read, if correctly set up on Enterprise / Education versions, with the "default enable" rule also set up, it should only block the particular "deny" .exe files only. ( As I said on my 10 Pro, I tried using the applocker and although I could set it up according to all the instructions, I could not get it it block IE or another program ).

    Sorry, maybe, one of the Gurus may know better.
