Lockdown with SteadyState - My Pictures Screensaver
Posted on 2007-07-28
I'm working on building a Kiosk out of an older Windows XP Pro laptop. I'm using Microsoft Windows SteadyState to help lock it down. I have it setup so that when the kiosk user logs in, IE opens up in fullscreen mode to a page with two links and users can navigate around these two websites only (explicitly defined in SteadyState settings).
I would like the "My Pictures" screensaver to run when the PC is idle. I set this as the screensaver for the kiosk user, then lock the user down using SteadyState, but when I remove the Control Panel icon from the start menu for the kiosk user, the default Windows logo screen saver becomes the screensaver for the kiosk user.
Any ideas on how I can make the MyPictures Screensaver stick for this user without providing the Control Panel icon on the start menu?
