Prevent downloads & users ignoring warnings from Avast
« on: February 08, 2014, 03:03:49 PM »
Is there a way to prevent users from ignoring warnings about infected files and downloading them anyway?. Is there a way I can prevent the downloading of files period?

This is on Windows 7 64-bit, IE 11 & Firefox 27.

Thanks

In the end the final decision is always with the user, if the user cannot adhere to or ignore warnings then best not let that user have access to the system.

There are restrictions that can be set in Family Safety for different user accounts but I have never used it so you might have to investigate.

Hi in Windows 7 you can create another account call it users or what ever. This account is not a admin account password protect your already existing Admin account. When the system boots up you will see 2 logins anyone using the user account which would be anyone not knowing the password that is not admin will not be able to change most settings or download and install anything. Do not give out the password for the Admin account
