We would like to stop unauthorized user software downloads. Is there a way to do this through Group Policy?
Another FAQ which we get a lot here. The answer is, once again, Software Restriction Policies. It will take some elbow grease to do this -- but you can lock down the workstation so nothing runs. Then, open the computer back up just enough to allow the applications you want to run. It's a lot of work, but worth it for those organizations that need this functionality.
