Permission issue

hello,

I have an executable that I would like to prevent from running, but whatever I do, it keeps running. This executable comes with another executable that I have and need. I don't know whether the second one changes the permissions of the first one, or removes and recreates it, or whatever, but this is annoying.
They're not system processes, but I believe they are being run with admin privileges (how could I check?). I was told that if I refused read and write, the executable wouldn't run. I don't know if working with permissions is the right way to go, or if they are being modified on the fly by the other executable, I'm just hoping you could give me a solution to this issue, whether it involves permissions or not.
Is there no way I can control what is running on my own computer ??
This is driving me mad, please help.

Thanks

    If you check in the group policy you will be able to find a policy to
    prevent certain applications that you list from running, please
    beaware that you will also need to block the run command because the
    programm can be run from the dos prompt
