Why can't I use certain programs on my computer?

Wayne State University's C&IT DeskTech team has implemented an application whitelist to improve security. This whitelist allows pre-authorized programs and programs that you have purposely installed to run on your computer, but prevents unknown applications from running. This prevents viruses from running on DeskTech controlled computers. If you run into an issue with an application or receive an error message, please contact the C&IT Help Desk.
