I am wanting to use application and device control to block dropbox.
How can I achieve this?
You can block it via the executable name or hash file

Easier to block it via executable name but also easier for the users to work out a workaround to launch it. Also if you use hash tag you have to enter the hash tag every time a new version of dropbox released as the hash will change.
Can also include the default instalation location for the executable as blocked so nothing from that location can launch.
Please review ideas and vote there could be something useful :)
