password protect all accounts and don't tell them the pass word. Leave a live linux cd for them to use. This one can run from the ram, so the cd is free.

You probably have to show them how to use it.

Make sure your account is the only Administrator account and password protect it. Make any other users "Restricted Users". This will not allow them to install anything onto the PC.
