Group Policy or Mandatory Profiles

I want to prevent users to be able to install any programs. I am setting up a group policy and Mandatory profiles. I do not see an option that will not allow people to install any program onto their computer. If anyone has ideas please let me know.

Like mleman said, by default they do not have rights to install unless the have administrative permissions.  The will be able to install if they have Power User rights on the Local Machine.

Mleman I am sorry to dissapoint you the order of policy settings are local-domain-site-OU in that order. So the last policy processed are OU level and the settings in that policy will be applied.

mlemanCommented:
yes but, if you have set policys on a local machine, when the same policy is published using gpos, local one is the winner

This is off topic but I just wanted to corret mleman.  Domain Policies will override Local Policies Unless you specify "No Override" or 'Block Policy".  By Default any Local Policy will be overwitten by a policy set by the Domain.
