How do I prevent local admin from changing IP address

Windows 7 computer on my Windows 2008 domain. Need to make sure that the static IP remains, so that I can filter out certain websites, for that computer, on my firewall.

the user needs to be a local admin for one of his work related programs

GPO - User Configuration>Policies>Administrative Templates>Network>Network Connections.  Prohibit access to properties of a LAN connection.

Remember that this is a user configuration, so if you only want to lock it down on a certain OU that contains computers then linking it to that OU won't do anything.  You have to link it to the OU that contains the users.

That sounds just right. Log in as loca admin, give user full rights to the application folder he needs, log in as user and test software functionality. Thanks.
