You are looking for Windows Applocker: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd759117.aspx

(part of Windows since Windows 7 - before that there were software restriction policies).

With Applocker you can enforce a policy where executables are only allowed to launch from a few protected folders, such as Program Files and Program Files x86. Or you can set a policy that only select publishers are whitelisted, e.g. Microsoft, Adobe etc.
