WIndows XP Pro, Local Group Policy.

Is it possible to disable a particular program from being run by users? More specifically, I want to stop users from running Outlook on a particular computer. If possible, please advise details on how to achieve. If there is a suitable alternative that can stop users from running Outlook I would like to hear it.

Many Thanks.
