Group Policy on Software

I have found this tutorial on group policy setting up for other areas but I was wondering what the best way to set up policy's for users accessing installed software. If you can point me to what it may be called and a tutorial on here that would be great!!

Hello Graphicsman,

You might take a look at either tutorial below to see if one of them may be able to work for this.

Applications - Prevent Running Specified Programs

and/or

AppLocker - Create New Rules

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Since you have Windows 7 Pro, the first tutorial listed would work better for this since you could also prevent specific users from running specific previously installed programs.

Will either of these allow me to restrict drive access to a single user only? I've tried to restrict drive access with Group Policy Editor but it applies the restriction globally--even to me the administrator. Could anyone let me know if this is possible and how to do it? Much thanks.
