I work for my company's IT Dept and have noticed that our network users are still playing computer games despite it being against company policy. I mentioned this to our network specialists and asked them if they could include these games on the file exclusion list of our antivirus software. However, it appears that our antivirus software (Symantec) does not have this capability.

Does Windows XP have a facility whereby an Administator type in a list of .exe or .com files that you don't want to run on the PC. In this case, computer games like PACMAN.EXE ?
