how to stop users from installing new programs in Windows 7

Hi,

My computer runs W7 with an administrator account and several other users.  

How can the administrator require permission before a user downloads or installs a new program to the computer?

This is a stand alone computer that is not on a network.

Thanks!

Here are my instructions:

Steps to follow
1. Click Start Menu and type "group policy" in the Instant Search box, 
and as it appears in the result press Enter to execute it. 

Tips:  + R and then type "gpedit.msc" and press Enter.

2. Now, under User Configuration, expand the Administrative Templates
and expand Windows Components scroll down and click Windows Installer.


Editing Local Group Policy settings for Windows Installer 

3. On the right-side you might see a list of different options.

4. Select one and apply that.

That's it.
