We are having problems with users installing applications when connected to a Citrix session. We want to disable the ability for anyone other than admins to install on the Citrix desktop session.. Can someone assist me with this?

What rights do they run under?  As a "user" level session much of this is restricted anyway.  If you are making them Power Users or Admins then you have a problem.  You can lock down many, many aspects of Windows for a terminal server session.  See the following:

This can be very upsetting to users and applications so you should test this very well before introducing to users or running as a production system.  In addition, tools such as RegMon and FileMon can be key to tweaking security.  You might need to open some security when the tools show where users need certain access.  Also remember that you need to use Regedt32 and not regedit to apply/change registry security.
