I setup the users as Power Users, so they have to provide admin credentials in order to install/uninstall software.

If you use NetScaler you will want to see these guides. The NetScaler How To Guides show administrators how to get NetScaler up and configured by providing instructions for common scenarios and some not so common ones.

I would suggest to move them to "Guests" group to restrict software installation.
That is if they don't need administrative privileges for some purpose.

Set as domain users without admin rights, make sure they are out of admin groups and ensure UAC is turned on for windows 7, this will prompt for admin credentials when installing/removing software
