  • Block users from installing sw

    Hi guys,
    i need to block an user from installing any kind of sw.
    I' ve removed it from Administrator group ( he' s only member of "users" group ).
    I' ve also set it as a "limited user", but he can still install application, for example Winamp.

    Perhaps i need to download some kind of tool?

    Hi Stocaprimo,
    I haven't tried to install winamp as normal user yet but I did with firefox and other software. Firefox will work with normal user installation. In your case, how about this free util? It's call Trust-no-exe. You can read and obtain it here

    Please let me know if you need further assistance.

    Regards,
    Teamwork

        You could set the "program files" directory to read only...

          Some apps do not require entries in the registry so any user will be able to install them. I don't know about WinAmp but other apps might also allow regular users to install them.

          Try using TRUST NO EXE from the following site:
