Specs: Windows XP
I am trying to set security policies for end users for use in a public setting. I do not want them to be able to save or change any files, change background or screen settings, access file systems, or adjust any other potentially hazardous functions. Basically I want to dumb down the OS to simply internet, games, and printing without the ability to save or change any data.

Go to Start Click Run and type GPEDIT.MSC. In here you will be able to setup the security settings you desire. You have to do it as local administrator so make sure you log in as "Administrator" this computer and not the domain. Also make sure you set the Local Administrator Password whcih by default is blank. Remember the Local Administrator is not the same as a Domain Administrator.

Hello OP,

I am in now way soliciting this product, simplying stating that it is an option.

One thing that could accomplish exactly what you want. Is called a centurion drive, centuriontech is the provider i believe.

Basically everytime a person restarts the computer everything returns to the way it was before you login.

Edit**Delay in post, previous poster mentioned the below
You can adjust policy settings anyway you want to via gpedit.msc. Let me know if you would like additional information
