After AppLocker rules are created, you can enforce the rules.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

    1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

    2. Click System and Security, and then click Administrative Tools.

    3. Double-click Local Security Policy.

  2. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Yes.

  3. In the console tree, double-click Application Control Policies, right-click AppLocker, and then click Properties.

  4. On the Enforcement tab, select the Configured check box for the rule collection that you want to enforce, and then verify that Enforce rules is selected in the list for that rule collection.

  5. Repeat step 4 to configure enforcement for additional rule collections.

  6. Click OK.

    1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

    2. Click System and Security, and then click Administrative Tools.

  2. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Yes.
