    Block an executable silently




      I want McAfee application control to block an executable( which is not under it's whitelist) silently. How to suppress the alerts in application control. I am using version 6.0.

            Rakesh, the above command is not working. I am getting "unknown feature, Ignoring" error from sadmin.


            Any idea why it is failing.

                  I guess you are talking about the windows popups that are poped up for blocking the execution of files. If yes, we can't supress them as its the windows functionallity.



                  In agents that are managed by ePO, we have a feature enduser-notification that generates solidcore popup (these popups are different then windows popup ). We can supress the popups caused by enduser-notification feature.

                    Yes, I was talking about windows popups. Let me know if you come acroos any other solution for the same. Thanks a lot for the support.
