Stop program from executing on domain computers

I am looking for a way to specify executables that cannot be run on the domain machines (for example, run.exe).  I am not sure if there is any way to do this, but it would be best if it could be disabled based on the .exe signature, and not the filename.  Does anyone know of any way this could be done?

I am essentially looking for a way to disallow some select games which students are playing that are very inappropriate for school.  Thanks.

Software Restriction Policies can be used for this.  Microsoft's instructions are here:

You would probably want to create a default security level of Unrestricted and then create exceptions for the games based on hash rules.

Be sure to test these policies thoroughly before using them in a production environment, as they can cause major problems if configured incorrectly.
