Enforce Antivirus by a group (domain) policy

Dear Experts,

How can I enforce presence of AntiVirus software on client workstation? I.e. if no AntiVirus software is installed - the user logon onto domain should be blocked, if AntiVirus is present - the user is allowed.

Are there some possibilities built-in or is there any software that allows to do that.

Any hints are appreciated.

You can enforce anti-virus software on your workstations via a GPO and Software Installation Policy, but I don't think you can block a user's logon if the software isn't present.  For blocking domain logons, look into network access control solutions (NAC).
