administrator just to install software

grnow asked
is there a way to have a user with administrator rights on windows xp that can login to install software, yet when comes to remote access, this user is not able to remote access?

Under Local Policies - User Rights Assignment, there is a line that says "Allow logon through Terminal Services." And just next to it is "Administrators, Remote Desktop Users." Double-click this setting and remove "Administrators".
