Hi,

Make everyone a standard (non-admin) user. This prevents them installing anything manually. ALL SCCM installs use System account so can't install whatever the user needs/want which is controlled by *you* via collections.

Collections can use direct membership or fancy queries, or fancy queries that look at AD group membership.

If you want more detail, just ask, but that is the high-level answer.

Users do not need admin rights, and SHOULD NOT be granted them. Ever. ConfigMgr is built to deploy software so has all the rights it needs implicitly. Use it as designed and there will be no need for anyone at all to be admin. Not even admins need to be admin...

Oh and Google Chrome does not need admin rights, I double checked.
