Stop installation Software

I have some remote users with laptops.  They keep messing them up with software.  Is there any good software out there to block, software installation.  The option to remove the users from local admin, is complicated because it causes issues with approved apps.   If that is the only route to go, fine.  But if some one knows some good software, it would help.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
