I have a bit of a problem and I'm wondering if anyone can help. I'm running VSE8.7.0i, patch 3 and the latest DAT's and Engine. I have set up a number of user defined rules in access protection policies to prevent the student in my school running files from a number of locations. I am blocking all processes the the folder/file name "h:\**\*.bat" This stops users creating batch files from their home area. I have an almost identical one for their destop, removable drives (E:/F:) and a couple of other places. This has been running fine for years on my XP machines however I recently purchased some Win 7 Machines and hit a problem. I noticed initally when I suddenly lost all my network drives. A little research showed this in the access protection log.
03/08/2010 14:10:43 Blocked by Access Protection rule <domain>\<user> C:\Windows\system32\userinit.exe \Device\Mup\<servername>l\netlogon\lginscrpt.bat User-defined Rules:BAT From H Action blocked : Read
03/08/2010 14:12:55 Blocked by Access Protection rule NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM C:\Windows\system32\gpscript.exe \Device\Mup\<domain>\SysVol\Domain>\scripts\PhotoStory.bat User-defined Rules:BAT From H Action blocked : Read
Now for some reason the rule is blocking access. If I disable the rule then the next similar rule will block the file. If I disable all the rules then the batch file works. The thing is that this works on XP machines, I also cannot see how this location has violated the rule condtition. If I exclude those two processes then the flie is still blocked but the process is changed to cmd.exe which I didn't want to exclude as I want to make sure I stop the pupils running the batch files (rather than just gamling they are all run under the explorer process when in windows.
Anyone had anything similar or any ideas?
A further piece of information is that my custom rules are actually blocking file types when I try and copy files from any network location for any file type.
For exeample my exe blocking rule (same as the BAT one) is blocking me copying exe files from a network location!
