I want to setup our network so that you can only install applications if your an administrator. I want the option for Shift/Right Click - Run As Administrator to be there.  We have a Windows Server 2003 setup with windows XP clients. Any information would help.

    basicaly you have to disable access to control panel by default the option would be visible, note that you have to prevent installing new applications for users by gpo

    Can you be more specific about what you are asking?  In XP, that Run As option is usually there for executables when you right-click on them.  As long as you don't set up your users as admins, then it shouldn't be an issue.
