Description

2 years ago
The Extension Point Disable policy, if enabled, prevents certain built-in third party extension points from being used. This policy blocks the following extension points:
•AppInit DLLs
•Winsock Layered Service Providers (LSPs)
•Globoal Windows Hooks
•Legacy Input Method Editors (IMEs)

Local hooks still work with the Extension Point Disable policy enabled. This behavior is used to prevent legacy extension points from being loaded into a process that does not use them.
