If you're using group or a local policy, there's another entry at User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\ with which you can restrict programs started by explorer to a defined list.
Well i'm not sure on 2000, but with xp if you install a program under admin it asks you if you want to share this program or not. you can also change access rules from right clicking on the program

log on as admin and go to control panel admin folder
here are your security and permissions options in windows 2000

ezlife, that does work on 2000 if the installer provide sthat integration.  Not all installers provide that option even in XP.

thiyaqups... oBda has the correct answer, a local security policy or even better a domain group policy are your best solutions.  Unfortunately if this is a standalone workstation and you use a local security policy it will apply to everyone but the administrator.  We may be able to help with this, but would need more detail on how you would like this to work.

I think that before closing this out one should consider review of user account for misuse including and beyond innattentiveness. This does not sound like an administrator needing help.

see above /quote/: "oBda has the correct answer"
SunBow.. you think this  is a potential end user trying to hide a program?   Hmmm.  What's an expert to do?
