If you want to block program downloads, usually best to do this at the gateway and block .EXE and .ZIP files etc with an HTTP policy.

What firewalls etc have you already got ?
Are you looking to protect just one machine, or others ?

Most proxy servers will do this - eg Squid, CCProxy ?

You can block .EXEs and .ZIPs etc with ISA server, using content groups:

Make sure your default rules are not overriding this.
