Restricting Vuze torrent app

Trying to block the Vuze torrent app on our machines. I have a Restricted Software policy set up however the process id for Vuze is called JavaApplicationStub, a generic Java application process. I can restrict the JavaApplicationStub process and is works however that also blocks some of the finance software the team uses. I am currently excluding the finance department from this so they that run there software. This is not ideal because no finance department could run Vuze as well. Has anyone found a better way to use the Restricted Software policy to block Vuze in a more precise manner and not block JavaApplicationStub as a whole?

I've been blocking Vuze for some time (along with almost all other p2p apps). I've attached screenshots of my Restricted Process setup (which does not block JavaApplcationStub). Just tested it again on my machine and it's still restricting, as intended. Hope this helps.
