Or apply a GP to prevent the installation of software onto any of the connected computers if the users must run in admin Mode.

Create a GPO with Restricted Groups

Create an OU for the machines.
Create a Restricted Groups policy, when selecting the groups, select your machine Administrators group and add only the domain admins.
Reset all the dekstops local admins password.
Apply the Policy to the new ou where you place the machine
