We have a helpdesk software that likes to install itself on all the systems
in the company.  For the servers, we do NOT want this.  I spoke with tech
support and they said to create a user, as I have, that has domain
permissions to install on the local user systems, and to great a GPO in AD on
Server 2003 that has HelpdeskAdministrat…@server.com account and then set
that account to DENIED to the member servers and the domain controllers.
I am not sure where in the GPO to go to edit and do I make it enabled, etc.

Basically:
I want to have Group Policy see that the user helpdeskadministrator is
trying to install and to have the group policy DENY that installation of the
software.

Thank you for your help.
