The only one native solution for me is setting NTFS permission to Read&Execute instead of Modify of that/those file(s)
There is no policy for that, only NTFS permissions settings

Maybe some 3rd party software but I didn't hear anything about that.

Users with administrative permissions are able to change all filenames on a windows computer. To prevent this you need to remove the administrator permissions for those that are not supposed to be able to do it.

Because of NTFS permissions (security tab of folder/file) :) You need to change their rights to folders/files :)

Are those Folders/Files in the same path on each client?
If so, you can try using GPO in Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> File System

Add there file or folder and set up security tab as you wish

It all depends where those exe files are stored. If these are installed applications which usually lie under c:\program files, these can by default only be renamed by administrators (and maybe powerusers). exe-files stored in users' homedirectories likely can be renamed by users as they usually have full access to their directories.
