    Prevent common programs from running files from the Temp folder help

      We have some users who want to run an application called Tempro, it installs fine however when you go to open it, you get an error saying you don't have permission to open the file. In the access protection log it has the following information;


      Blocked by Access Protection rule           DOMAIN\USERNAME                C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE        C:\Program Files\TEMPRO6\TEMPRO6.exe          Common Standard Protection:Prevent common programs from running files from the Temp folder              Action blocked : Execute


      I have checked the Common Standard Protection and explorer.exe is in the included list, i have tried adding tempro6.exe to the exclusion list but Mcafee still blocks it as i'm assuming it's explorer.exe trying to launch the file from a temp directory. I don't want to remove explorer.exe from the included list, is there another way around this problem?
