I am looking for a way to block the installation of software that is inniated from the internet.  Specifically to block the install of malware and spyware like Antivirus 2009.    If I could just block ALL software installs on my users workstation, then I can prevent any one from accidently loading un-approved software.   I could then disable this when we want to do windows updates or approved software installs.
