Hello i have a client that i keep having to clean out viruses and spyware everywhere 6 months. So what i'm trying to is make all the user accounts limited and have one Admin account that are password protected. But i tried to download a program and i was still able to install a program. Is there a way in group policy to not any user install programs? It's a Win XP Professional SP 3 and its a home machine. What can i do?

I think the first things that you need to do is set them up with -

1/ A very good A/V program -

2/ A paid(Pro) version of Malwarebytes Antimalware ($30 lifetime cost) -

Only a password protected computer will keep others out - They must handle the system personally, and not let others play with it -
Then they will know who is downloading programs etc. -

Thank You -

A slightly dated thread from a trusted source. Some good links and info in post #5.

Hope you find some helpful info.
