Block authorized adware and PUAs

If you use role-based administration:

  • You must have the Policy setting - anti-virus and HIPS right to perform this task.
  • You cannot edit a policy if it is applied outside your active sub-estate.

For more information, see Managing roles and sub-estates.

To prevent currently-authorized adware and PUAs from running on computers:

  1. Check which anti-virus and HIPS policy is used by the group(s) of computers you want to configure.
  2. In the Policies pane, double-click Anti-virus and HIPS. Then double-click the policy you want to change.
  3. In the Anti-Virus and HIPS Policy dialog box, click the Authorization button.
  4. On the Adware or PUAs tab, in the Authorized adware and PUAs list, select the application you want to block.
  5. Click Remove.
