Limit employee internet usage to busines only

Specs: Windows Vista
We are a flower shop - one computer with Point of Sale, second computer in office for QuickBooks and email. The shop computer has to be online for the software to update; the employees occasionally need to look up the design of a flower arrangement or even care of a plant. They should not be browsing, using facebook, or checking their email. Most solutions seem geared to large offices with offsite computers, multiple users -- we are three employees and one computer used for checkout. Is it possible to limit their usage and protect our files?

I'd have to say that with only one computer and three employees this should be a fairly simple thing to deal with. You don't need software; you need to talk to your employees. Tell them what is acceptable and what is not, and then trust them; if necessary, produce a written policy. Then enforce it.

Trust your staff and they will treat you similarly. It's got to be obvious with only three employees if you have a slacker.

or maybe this would work if you don't need internet webpages, a program called prism might help, you can type in a website url like you flower shop and remove the address bar and by using a desktop shortcut and removing the IE icon they won't be able to type in an address like facebook, etc if the first suggestion doesn't work.
