We have lock down XP environment regular user are not allowed to install any software but software such as Google Earth are installing because they install in the user profile and not writing any thing in the Reg, Program Files or any other windows folder.

How to stop that.

Thanks.

You could use software restriction policies. Other than that, the user pretty much has unabated access to their profile. If there are no files going to shared resources, then they won't be blocked from installing it.

Either they are using a web installer or someone helped them install it via "Run-as."

Web installer, means you need to change the IE security policy.

if the installation puts everything in the user profile and you don't want them accessing it you'll have to end run around installation some other way: restrict downloads, running of programs, etc.

Yup ....seen this also bit unfortunate , the install uses the isscript engine which I guess under normal circumstances could have an issue installing as a locked down user but as so many apps use various isscript engines it's nearly alway's the case that this will install.

Depending on the way you look at it a great move by google !
