The most aggravation we've had with situations like that is software
for digital cameras, who insist on installing on the C: drive, which
we disable with the use of Group Policy.

There's very little Group Policy can't do, or secure. Knowing how to
use GP is the best security in a corporate setting.

In the "professional" and "ultimate" editions of Windows (also WinXPPro) gpedit exists on the local system too.  I believe it can be accessed using gpedit.msc when you use the run command dialog.  There's also the Admin Tools in the control panel which has additional options for security.
