Hi experts,

I need to find out the way to prohibit on domain controller for all users creation of new User Group which contains spaces in the name.
Like User Power instead of User_Power.
Can someone give me some hints on this?

Not aware of any way this can be done to be honest, certainly haven't ever seen any. Presumably this is because you have scripts or integration that breaks when group names contain spaces?

Actually not. I am trying to disable installation of the software which creates its own user group. And it creates first the user group called Software Admins. Then it puts inside the user with specific name and goes on with installation.

I know, it can be disabled by prohibiting in delegation the creation/deletion/modification of the group. But was wondering if it can be done by group policy.

To restrict software installation in windows 7+ you are best off using AppLocker in Group Policy.  There's a good AppLocker primer here: http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles-tutorials/windows-7/Introduction-AppLocker-Part1.html

There seems to be no way for this.
