Currently, you can block applications by using hash value and  filename.

Cons of Hash Value and Filename:

1. New version of application has different hash values.

2. Filename can be renamed.


1. Add Publisher Name of the application in the option for blocking. This will resolve the problem of the hash and filename in blocking an application.
