I am having trouble understanding how to use Whitelisting apps with AppLocker.

Here is the bit I don't get from what I can see you Create Default rules first. Then you create other rules. But the default rules will let everything through under those paths unless you create deny rules. Which sort of defeats the purpose of whitelisting everything.

Can somebody please clarify how this works so I can better understand it.

I suspect there is something I am missing here :)
