Deep Freeze (http://www.faronics.com/html/choose.asp) can, kind of, help with most of your problems. It allows anything to be changed but every time you restart everything goes back to exactly the way it was when Deep Freeze was originally installed. This makes all viruses useless after you restart. ANY change you make will be restored. You can create "thawed" drives that will allow changes, also. To block websites, just use the hosts file if you're only going to use IE. To block other websites, I guess you could use http://www.download.com/Cyclope-Internet-Filtering-Proxy/3640-2653_4-10510936.html?tag=qf_ustars, even though I've never tried it and I don't know what browsers it works in.

Microsoft issued a free application for Internet cafe like usage of the IE. It was waterproof, as far as I remember, but I cannot remember the name.
