a quick question about attachment

I have attached snapshot of configuration for File Filtering in MEG 7 . Please define the diffence in Name filtering and extension filtering .Also if i want to block .prg files then by adding PRG in name filtering is enough or I will need to add *.PRG ? Kindly confirm if i want to block on the basis of extensions
