    As long as the users are not members of the local Administrators or Power Users group on the PC's then they will not have access to install software.

    Some software (that manily do use the registry \ proper MSI installer or Program Files for it's working directory), will still install under a standard user account, and I'm afraid there is not much you can do about that.

    not sure if you can lock it down any more through a GPO.
