I need to find an application which block a user-defined application from running.

I know this is a very specific request, but if anyone knows of such an application, i would be grateful if they would let me know

Does this fit the bill? click here
I expect a user could rename the executable to get round it, but it depends on the security level of the machine in the first place (and the users level of ability of course).

Your firewall.

I need a method that can be used by a user with very limited user, not by admins

Can you elaborate?

I'm a school admin, and we are using Danware Netop, and I know students are blocking the Student application by using some kind of stand-alone application. This is constantly blocking the Student application from running as it would ordinarily restart every minute or so

I need to find out more about the application they are using

No you can't. If talking about family members forget it.
If you want to spy on anyone then google for keyloggers etc.

Apologies. Not enough info.

rdave13: What? Who said about spying on people? Its a school

Look at my posting times and the apology was already there.
Are you telling us that pupils at a school are by-passing your secure network?

Not easy, especially if they can just change the name of the file at will...
