Server SBS 2003
Clients XP SP2

I want to make an Active Directory Policy to prevent users can install prorgams or plug-ins, acitivX....
I need a step-by-step answer.
I don't know if it is necessary in each client computer go to Control Panel Users and set properties Restricted User or if I  make the Active Direcory Policy this is no matter what is set there.

I want to make this for security prpouses and make necessary to start the login with an administrative Account to install any software. I'm I in the right way?

Thanks a lot

Are you new to Group Policy?  If so, remember that entire books are written on this subject, so I recommend you watch these 2 videos first:
