Password prompt for downloading/installing web programs?

Hi, is there a way to prohibit downloading .exe from an admin account/ Basically, my kids play games online, now im talking about ben ten etc, but i came back from work and one of them had a trial version of norton internet security!

I dont want to have other accounts, I just want my admin account but with windows 7 prompting BEFORE, any programs actually download, never mind allowed to be installed.

Ant ideas?
