    Hello

    You can acheive this either by creating the limited account or enable the
    guest account.

    1.creating the limited account:

    start(button)->settings->control panel->user accounts.From the screen select
    "create a new account".Type a name for that account and hit next.In the next
    screen select the account type as "limited" and hit create account.

    2.Enable guest account:settings->control panel->user accounts.From the screen
    (of users),click on the Guest account then in next screen "turn on the guest
    account".

    Now you can log with guest(password empty) or with the account you have
    created in 1.So users who log with these two accounts cannot install the
    softwares.

    Hope this helps..
