You can also control this by limiting membership in the local Administrators and Power Users groups on each workstation, as normal Users are restricted from installing most (though not all) software packages.

I only want most people to install only company approved software, if not company approved they will not be able to install software.

Then you will need to create a Software Restriction Policy using the links provided above, and add the necessary installers and executables for any software that you have defined as "company-approved".

Where do i add the necessary installers and executables?  Can I restrict certain PC's from installing and leave some PC's so they can still install any software? looks like i would create an OU to restrict then create an "engineering" OU that i dont want to restrict. I'll spend time reading the articles then start the fun.
