How to prevent install Sharepoint using Group Policy

For instance they might not want end-users to install SharePoint even if they are a local computer administrator.

HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\ SharePoint\

To block installation, set DWORD DisableInstall=00000001
