Does anyone have a good way of stoping people from installing Registry Mechanic on a few machines that I work with. They need to have rights to install other programs that they get from Zenworks, but I do not want them installing Registry Programs. Any ideas would be helpful.

I am running Windows 7 Pro 32 bit.


Thanks.

For non-"Home" editions of Windows you can use Software Restriction Policies to prevent a user from running specific programs. For Windows 7 Ultimate (or Enterprise) you can also use AppLocker. Finally, there are also 3rd party programs designed for this purpose such as Install-Block and the Stop Software Installation Tool. Let me know what you end up using, and how it works out. Scott.

Thank you for the help. I went to gpedit.msc, computer configuration, Windows Settings, Security Settings, and Software Restrictions Policies. There I entered the path of the software I wanted blocked. Thanks for the article I am going to look up the other ways of blocking to make it more secure.
