Recently I created a new small guide about how to harden the Low Restricted settings (Intrusion Prevention module), where are moved all the unknown apps by default.

These tweaks are less aggressive than my previous ones in Default Deny guide.

Hey I have a question. I did your Hardening KTS - High Restricted for apps that couldn't be put in a category and High Restricted for app that loaded prior to KTS and Do Not Trust Digitally Signed Programs... otherwise all left on default. I re-installed NFS Unbound from the original EA app and it was put in High Restricted, how come? I had to put it to Trusted so I could play

It can happen if the installer or the exe: it is not known in KSN, has a non properly digitally signed or certificate issue. Check in Intrusion Prevention -> Manage Applications, his KSN info, example for FireFox:
