We have just discovered that Hotspot Shield is being used by some users in our organisation to by pass our internet security servers to access websites which are on our web security host's 'blocked website' policy.
I understand that Hotspot Shield is commonly and legitimately used to provide anonymous web browsing by people who use laptops etc. in unsecured WiFi hotspots - but we need to stop this program from being installed and used on our remote PCs. The Hotspot Shield program is installed via a downloadable executable .exe file.
If there any way to edit a local PCs registry to stop a user running and installing such .exe based packages which give rise to a fully operational 'Hotspot Shield' application capable of acting as an unauthorised proxy server to access blocked internet sites ?
