  6. It could be done via a script, which would run at startup, but it is a bit complicated to do.

    It can be achieved by programming, but it is a little dificult and needs professional knowledge to do so.

    is there a way to stop one program from being able to run when another

    Hi there

    Coming from an old Mainframe environment this type of stuff is second nature !!!!

    With Windows though it should be easy enough

    Find out what the program is calling --then restrict the privilege level

    This link while for W7is still valid for W10.

    How to Block (or Allow) Certain Applications for Users in Windows

    Cheers
