How to automatically block dangerous downloads

Hello. We're using McAfee Total Protection in our network. Also, we widely use WebAdvisor as a first wall of defense. WebAdvisor is a great tool, but when it finds a dangerous file a user trying to download, it suggests the user make the decision himself - allow or block. Unfortunately, sometimes it leads to problems... It would be great to forbid users from any suspicious downloads, but we didn't find any settings for it. Can we do this somehow? Thanks!
