Download Media Types - MSI?

In the media types list I can't seem to find MSI files. I currently have executables and archives blocked, but users are still able to download MSI files. I am trying to figure out how block MSI files but a search of "MSI" and "Microsoft" in the media types does not pull up anything. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

most MSI files should have an EnsuredType of "application/windows-installer-database"
