Free apps to prevent installation

  1. Hello,

    Is there any other free apps around that can prevent users from installing all kinds of software, pretty much like Deep Freeze. See I'm running a small internet cafe business, and I hate it when people install all kinds of third-party apps (e.g Yontoo). Kids are regulars here in my cafe and some have no idea what they're doing with the system.

    I don't want to use Deep Freeze. I want something simple to use and with much flexibility.

    Thanks.

    What version of Windows? Win/7 takes care of this by forcing use of the admin/password & the UAC feature.

    Windows 8, though the UAC was left disabled by me. The restrictions that I want to make is for the customer's user accounts. I don't want to use the family safety features of Windows 8 because there are so many pop-ups that show on the desktop whenever a customer starts any app, it's so annoying.
