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

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

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
