This Windows fileset lets you blacklist processes on PCs by terminating them. The utility in this fileset reads a list of process names to be blacklisted from a configuration file named fwbl.cfg. FWBlackList checks for updates to the fwbl.cfg file every 5 minutes. When it is running, FWBlackList checks for processes to terminate every 1 second. For apps that launch quickly you may see them flash on the screen briefly as they are terminated. For apps that are slower to launch the app window won’t even appear on screen as they are terminated. All terminations are logged to %windir%\temp\fwcl.log on the client PC with a date and time stamp. Instructions for usage are provided in the attached zip file. No support is provided so use at your own risk.
