  • You may use Event Viewer under Subscription to define alert when it was any event or log related to installation.

    Whenever someone install anything, it will create log and you could define Event Viewer to send you alert. Just you should take note for all installation like Windows Update, you might get alert, so you should setup it to filter log files which you want. 

    In general, you shouldn't let users to install new programs and it should be in hand of administrator.
