I am looking for some software or policies or any insight whatsoever. We recently setup a windows server 2003 and would like a group of users when they login to lock thier computer down and automatically popup internet explorer. But we do not want them to have access the my computer, control panel, etc.

There are some group policies which you can download - Common Scenarios. Interesting
are GPs for highly managed computers or even kiosks. GP for kiosks is very restrictive!

The address is: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=354B9F45-8AA6-4775-9208-C681A7043292&displaylang=en

I had a kiosk with these policies and it worked :-)) I don't remember now, maybe I made
some changes in the GP,  but the downloaaded one was a very good starting point and I
didn't work a lot.

Additionally, I installed Word, Excel and PowerPoint viewers instead of full Office
application. Start menu was very short, on the desktop there was only one icon,
IE. IE started in kiosk mode, as described in the post of sirbounty.
