Sounds like you need Novell's Zen, the BOFH's wet
dream for dealing with Windows boxes.

If the user installs anything, when the server polls the
client and checks the db and finds something new,
it automagically deletes the whatever was installed.
And, it's granular, so you can allow some clients to
install some types of things, but not others.

Just another example of Novell having a good product
and not marketing it properly.
