|What kind of software should I use to protect a computer that will be accessible to public walk-in customers?|
I want to protect against 3 things mainly in order of importance:
1.) Access of the previous customers data. Could be websites they forgot to logout of or personal data they saved on the computer.
2.) Stop them from messing up the computer.
3.) Stop them from fooling around with other devices/computers on our network.
The purpose of this machine is to allow customers to go online and download/open documents for printing or emailing (through web based e-mail only). We don't want or need them to have access to anything else. It won't be the end of the world if they destroyed this computer but we don't want them to mess up anything else on our network. The biggest threat is that one customer accesses the previously customers data that was carelessly saved to the computer or a website they didn't logout of.
What is the best solution that's free or not too expensive? This doesn't have to be secure like fort knox - the customers will only be accessing this computer while in direct line of site of employees but still I think it's only prudent to put in some reasonable deterrents and take some reasonable steps to protect customer data.
Ideally every time somebody logs out or in all caches, temp files, active logins and files saved to the computer would be purged.
