    Make sure the TS users are not Administrators.

    If the users only need one applcation on the TS, configure it to run when user logs in. That way, the users do not get the Windows GUI (no Start Button, no Task Bar) so they won't be able to launch any other apps.

    If you need limit user access to admin toools, just change the security parameters to deny all domain users in the all users > start menu folder for the corresponding folder. Users don't need to have access to a control panel also, so take that away in Group Policy.
