  Yes.  But, if he is adding his users as administrators, this entire thread
is moot.

    It will run for admins if you enable the policy setting to do so.

    Keep in mind, Windows Installer doesn't run in a terminal server
session, so if stuff is being installed, its not via windows installer
anyway.

       Thanks Joel but I checked and that policy is already in place,
enabled. I'm thinking about looking into the HKLM read only and the Full
Security mode that a couple of people have requested. My concerns are other
programs such as Office and Adobe will not work.

      The locations are:



      Computer Settings/Windows Components/Windows Installer/Policy
Setting/Prohibit User Installs

      User Settings/Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Browser
menus/Disable Save this program to disk



      These come from the out of box ADM templates that come with the GPMC
with SP1 from Microsoft.



      If you need the GPMC go to

       I have searched the GPO but cannot find either of these policies, is
there a specific .adm I need to load?

      One quick tip I can think of is to change the permissions in the
registry on the HKLM\Software key to read only for the users.  A lot of
program installs will fail and/or not execute if they cannot write
information to this key.  Also, a GPO or local policy to Prohibit User
Installs (under Computer Configuration) could help.  Additionally, use a GPO
or local policy to not allow downloads from Internet Explorer.

       I have a question, I work for a property management company and we
provide Internet via Citrix to students. I have tried desperately to lock
down the servers but they seem to still be able to install Internet based
programs, (e.g. AOL instant messenger, Poker Party, etc) to name a few. Is
there a way to lock the server down tight so this cannot continue without
prohibiting the users to run necessary programs such as Office?
