"No need to look for a third-party solution.
You can setup security policies of this level through Software Restriction Policies. Also described here.

For your case in particular, you want to run secpol.msc. I currently don't have access to Windows XP or Vista. I can't remember the exact details. They shouldn't vary much though. If you are using Windows 7, you want to then navigate to Application Control Policies -> AppLocker -> Executable Rules. You then create a new rule to disable executable execution rights on a certain path."
