I plan to use tool to prevent following file extensions from being created but concerned
that it may impact legit software/apps.  Anyone know if there's any adverse impact.
We have implemented things that cause big disruptions which we now need to be careful.

Don't have a complete list of software we use but offhand, we hv MS Office Suite (incl Outlook),
a few users use media player/access Youtube (so not sure if preventing .mp3 from being
created will be an issue) & Adobe reader, archiving tools (winzip), various McAfee security
agents/tools in our PCs, DLP, Acronis, Checkpoint disk encryption, 2FA softwares.

Mostly on WIn 7 but may have some going to Win 10.

Below is the list of extensions :
