Blocking Google Chrome

Currently I have a gpo in place to disallow the install of Google Chrome.  However, this is not working and my users are installing Chrome.  Problem is none of our software will work with Chrome.  Is there any thing else besides blocking all .exe files I can do to stop my users from installing chrome?

Hi,
If you're trying to block a single executable that you're familiar with you can disable it from a GPO using the setting:
User Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Don't run specified Windows applications

and put the chrome.exe and apply the group policy.

But anybody can rename executable file and gain install it. I think this is not enough way to get this.

You can try removing local admin privileges, and blocking executable name, but there is a portable software that can be run without install and not require admin privileges. And, of course, can rename exe file if your block any file by name.

It is really difficult your problem... http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/335d1f1c-197d-4cdf-a332-9a5134309b04/is-there-a-way-to-block-the-installation-of-software-on-domain-computers?forum=winserverGP

Maybe you can block chrome on your proxy using user agent, this causes software not work as expected and really nobody wants install one piece of software can not work.
