You could probably block this executable from running by name with a GPO, but chances are the executable could just be renamed to get around the block. How about preventing it from running by changing the NTFS permissions on the file to deny read?

This is not a centralized version for Symantec AV. Look into below links, if suits your requirement.

3rd party tool
http://bashsoftware.net/

MS GPO option

But I really want to understand, why you want to block live meeting. This is now a days required tool for all users.

I found one article. Not sure if this might help
