We are predominantly a windows shop.  One of the MAC users is constantly messing up his computer.  Is there a way I can lock down his MAC with the goal of preventing him from making system changes or software installations?  If yes, how?

Make him a new account but make it Standard account instead of Administrator account.

You could even enable Parental Control inside the System Preferences to limit his access to the interent, time spent on the internet, applications which are allowed to use etc.

Agree with Sigurarm, but I would change his current account to standard, and make sure there is an IT Admin Acccount.
