JSI Tip 3698. How do I prevent a user from using 'Add/Remove Programs'?

To prevent users from using Add/Remove Programs, Enable the Disable Add/Remove Programs Group Policy at User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Add/Remove Programs.

Enabling the policy sets the NoAddRemovePrograms value name to 1. This REG_DWORD data type is located at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Uninstall.

NOTE: When NoAddRemovePrograms is 1, it takes precedence over the other entries at this subkey.
