I want to set permissions so the standard users on my PC aren't able to install software. It is a workstation used for POS and the employees have a general employee account but i've had issues with them installing programs leading to viruses and the like so i'd like to somehow prevent that. I'm running windows 7. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
