Hi everybody!

I'm Davide and my Boss ask me if will be possible block a software, in my case Outlook, in a particulare time range (ex. from 10 to 12).

 

Is possible to do something with a group policy? Because all restriction in my LAN must to be make with Group Policy...

 

Thanks a lot.

Davide

Perhaps a scheduled task that toggles the corresponding policy/reg keys?

Sorry... I don't follow you...

Can you explain me please?

Since the corresponding GPO settings are basically reg keys. you can toggle those via a simple PowerShell script. And to ensure that the settings are toggled on a specific time schedule, you can use a scheduled task that fires the script to toggle the settings, as needed.
