Password for installing programs

#1
Hi, I am looking for a freeware program that will require that a password be entered anytime someone tries to install a program on the computer. Creating another account isn't an option right now. There is a bunch of spyware and adware getting installed and causing a computer to bog down. I would really like to have some more control of what gets installed and what doesn't

Thanks!

well why isn't it an option it's the best option XP could give you, if a limited user wants to run it he has to right click>run as> and enter your user and password, so it's safe

Yeah like fishboy said ... That is the best option .. You could do that by setting up a admin account, and using the limited account exclusively ...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
