There are no general solution for every application on earth so if you could provide the actual application your working with that would help

AFAIK, none of these applications will allow you to do what you want at the instalation level. The only realistic way to do this is to run macros within the products themselves. That will involve you in learning some Windows API calls (as you may need to alter system menus), some VB/VBA and *proper* programming. In other words, forget it.

An alternative approach to prevent your users updating (or attempting to update) applications is to find out which sites the applications call and add them to your company's firewall/procy blacklist.
