Domain policy

I am working in a domain environment - Windows 2008 R2. I want to create a policy to block the games in all the client computers. Is it possible and if yes kindly guide me as how to create and deploy this policy in the domain. Client computers works on Windows 7 and Windows XP OS.

Software restriction policies would be overkill, you would achieve the same using NTFS permission restrictions. those can be deployed using GPOs, too, like shown here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc756952%28v=ws.10%29.aspx (still applies to current server OS').

That very much depends on where the games are being loaded from. Are you referring to the built in games (freecell, etc)? Or internet based games?

If users are installing games, you can use restricted groups to remove their admin permissions: http://deployhappiness.com/managing-restricted-groups-with-group-policy/

If they are going to websites, you will want a content filtering system. We use lightspeed in our environment.
