My 2 cents.....

If you are not looking for a "large robust solution" and you have Windows, try a mixed solution of Microsoft Windows 
Security Essentials for servers and workstations to detect and eliminate, 

Windows inherent AppLocker for Windows 2008/Windows 7/Vista for whitelisting authorized apps. 

For Windows XP, try Microsoft SteadyState to "freeze" the machine configuration and any changes are automaticallly 
removed on reboot. Note: It's been discontinued since 2011 and support for XP will be too in the near future.

I hope you don't have Windows 98/ME/NT/2000 in your environment as there is no hope for you. ;-)

Security Essentials:http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5201

Applocker (How to Guide): http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd723686(v=WS.10).aspx

SteadyState (search for the download) there is also a reference document for all settings in SteadyState here: 

You could use Microsoft System Center to what you want and more.

Good Luck
