In our large public school district, we have a need to prevent the students from saving executable files in their home folders.  These include exe, com, cmd, bat, or anything that can be disquised as a game or virus.  Providing a list of acceptable applications in a GPO is not an option as we deal with hundreds of applications and would be logistically impossible.
