Software Restriction Policies can help, but only if you configure the restrictive "Only allow the software that I explicitly list here:" setting, which is difficult to administer/maintain on an ongoing basis: http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Software-Restriction-Policies.html

As I know, It is impossible by GPO. Because local administrators are the top one in locally after logon.

rhinoceros - Software Restriction Policies, when properly configured, will affect even local administrators of a given computer.  It's just a question of whether it's worth the time needed to test, deploy and maintain the kind of locked-down environment needed to do so.
