Well the installation part is a windows problem.
The network play part of the problem would be a configuration problem. Have you read the configuration documentation available?

On the Windows machine, you would use the policy editor to remove rights for the user's account.

thanks for ur reply guys!

can dansguardian prevent the user or ip to install and play games?

let say if dansguardian or whatever, found an ip using the word "setup, install, games, play" can automatically block the said ip?

thanks!

IP's don't have any words associated with them...

I'm not sure what you think you can actually do over the LAN, but the only way to block installation of software on any machine (that isn't a terminal, or controlled by a domain server) is to add security to the local machine, it can't be done with a network protocol.

You could probably block requests for files with names setup, install...
That wouldn't give much though.
As said before you will have to take control of your windows machines, either using a NT/2000 domain or local policies.
What OS are the clients running?

As said before, that wouldn't get you anything since most programs use other names like the actual program name or an acronym.
The setup.exe file is usually found on cd-roms only.
That kind of filtering with such obvious holes would only slow down processing for just about nothing in return.

Instead fix your network and take control of it. On top of that you could use content filtering, but that is secondary.

This approach is much like locking the door and leaving the windows wide open. It stops the polite burglar. Trust me your user won't play it according to the book.
