Specs: Windows 7
How do I disable the password system? I do not
want anyone to be able to set a password on my
computers. Can I disable a service to prevent
passwords from being set?

You tell them to not set passwords. I know of no way to do that. Everyone else in the world wants to force them to have a password.

What would it matter anway? No one ought to be an admin except one person. That person ought to use a standard user except when some very limited tasks can't be performed by runas.

If they are on display set a password so that if anyone wants to try out (fiddle with) a computer they have to call a sales assistant to open the system. When they have finished fiddling (with the assistant in attendance) the computer can then be reset to be password protected. When the computer is sold the password can be removed.

Set an admin pw that a manager and IT has, and a user account with a simple password for employees to assist browsers. Then, even if someone changes the user password, the admin acct can be used to delete the user and recreate it correctly.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Disregard my comment above. I just learned M$ has no plans to support Windows SteadyState on Windows 7.

You can try google for "Windows Steadystate for Win dows 7 alternatives" or something like that. If there is no freewares, don't be a cheapstak - buy what works to avoid giving the 20 customers a bad impression about your business. Remember this: Customers are hard to get and easy to lose!
