user defined rules

Hello friends

I have problem with user defined rules,we define user defined policy not to create exe file in this path C:\users\*\AppData\**\*.exe,

It causes many problems because it blocks all the exe files that users want to create if this rule is not possible can I remove it?

Re: user defined rules

​, Welcome to McAfee community.

It looks like you are using a crypto rule. Instead of disabling the rule, should make exclusions for your environment. In the threat event log, it will tell you exactly what's being blocked by this particular rule. So you can go back and add the particular executable in the rule rather than removing it.
