Just don't, they will be unable to run any program.....

>or ordinary install files
don't give them more than user rights, if they have superuser or administrator rights they can install programs, especially don't give them any local rights.

Nope, as I said before, blocking all exe files makes a computer useless. Then they won't even be able to run Word, just to give an example.

Just don't give them any local rights. And make sure you haven't given them those rights in active directory.

You can do this in group policy, creat an OU called "Restricted" and put the users you want in it.  In the default group policy of that ou, go to:
User Configuration/Administrative Templates/System and enable "Run only specified windows applications"  and select the apps you want these users to have.

If you also go into Administrative Templates/Start Menu & Taskbars, and enable "remove run menu from start menu",  you will prevent users from working around you and using the run command to start programs.
