Is there some way to prevent users to save executables/mpegs/specified
filetypes in their homefolders?

I'm preparing to move the userfolder to a new fileserver, and did a
routine scan of the files and found that there were hundreds of
executables and installers and three or four copies in next to every
users's home folder of the humouristic movieclip badluck.mpe (you know
the one with the guy in the cubicle who finally gets fed up with his
computer and totally trashes it).

I think I need to prevent this somehow, as hd-space is filled up rather
quick with non-workrelated stuff... It seems like education and regular
reminders just don't work...

How do you ppl prevent this sort of thing?
