Problem: Group Policy for Cryptowall Prevention

Last Modified: 2015-11-26
Hi Everyone,

I've implemented Computer Policy for our domain as suggested on various websites such that exe. cannot run in system folders %appdata% and %temp%

Now I have a big problem. I can no longer install legitimate software to any computers that are joined to domain.

Any suggestions, workarounds? Log in as local computer administrator perhaps?
