Preventing the users from installing apps.
Posted on 2007-04-07
I have a General Group policy that applies to all workstations and users. I need to make sure that the users cannot install any application (including the small applications, such as google bar, screen savers, themes...etc). Only the Administrators can install that.
I tried to user "Software Restrictions" and set it to "Disallow" but that leads to prevent the users from running any application. Also, I tried to block Windows Installer and set it to Evaluated, but the problem here is that the users have access to "My Documents" folder, which means they can install the application into My Documents, and run them from there.
any help is much appreciated.
