 How can I keep Windows XP users from installing programs. I need to lockdown my systems so my users only have access to the programs I allow them.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

SteadyState is great. I was looking for a similar solution. I like that it's user-based.
