Our office is growing fast, and I am having an issue with rogue users. The main software we use (AutoDesk Building Design Suite) requires users to be admins on their machines. However, we are having users install software on their own...including personal programs, educational licensed software, bootleg software, etc. In the process, several users have installed spyware/malware, leading to bigger issues.
Without strict support from management to enforce policy, but with pressure from management to stop this from happening, I am looking for a way to stop user accounts from installing software. I would like to keep my admin account capable of doing this, of course. We are running Win7 Pro 64 on all machines.
I am not too familiar with modifying policies in Win7. If you can tell me where to look, I have no issue doing the reading; I just cannot seem to find the correct info with the searches I have done.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
