Right click my computer, manage, local users and groups, users. Set everybody except you in the users group and put yourself in the admin group.

Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.

thats just the same as setting a user to limited mode. i dont want to do that because a limited user cant access other users "my documents" folder. i prefer the other users of my pc to have admin priviledges, but i just want to disable installation for all programs.
