Is is possible to monitor if a user try to install software or try to do modifications to a windows system?

All installation and/or modification should be done by an administrator. If a user try to do it by himself it should be blocked and reported by email to the administrator.

The installation of software can be blocked by using active domain groups. – Ramhound Apr 3 '13 at 15:42

I use LogMeIn Pro, which can set up alerts based a large number of parameters, including software installations and settings changes.

LogMeIn Pro is way to much targeted at remote access and we don't need this functionnality. We need a tool that will report to the system administrator all attempts at executing administrative tasks. – bern Apr 4 '13 at 12:08
