I created the GPO,
I logged onto a virtual PC as a normal domain user. The policy shows up in the "gpresult".
Opened up IE 8, surfed to www.google.ca
, clicked on "Install Google Chrome"
The installation started, then the Virtual PC rebooted by itself.
I logged on again, repeated the installation, the Google Chrome installation did complete, and it did install.
The software restriction did stop me from running it. (which was what I wanted)
Is there a way to stop it from even installing.
I did try; select New Software Restriction Policies.
Right click Additional Rules and choose New Path Rule. In the Path field, type chromesetup.exe.
In the Security level drop-down box, choose Disallowed and click OK.
Repeat for the chrome.exe and gears-chrome-opt.msi files.
but this not stop the install
