Nitin,

You can do by creating a group policy or a local policy on the machine...Look into Software Restriction Policies  - you can restrict users so that they can only run the applications that you permit,
or you can specifically disallow only certain files or file types

Ref there..

Just to clarify:  Is the user a local administrator or not?

Ah, after re-reading I think I understand.  Nitinbd80, you're saying that you need to grant administrative rights to the user in order for them to run an application.  

Typically you can circumvent granting them local administrator rights by only granting them elevated privileges to the Program Files\Application folder rather than to the whole workstation.  You may also need to grant them elevated privileges to the C:\Windows\Temp folder if the application needs access there.  By only granting them elevated privs to these folders, you avoid the software installation issue that comes with making them local admins.

This isn't ideal for security, but applications shouldn't require end users to be administrators to run in the first place.
