Locking down a client machine in AD (Kiosk)

I have a client that wants to use a machine basically as a Kiosk. They only want people to view 1 website and nothing else.  No other applications either.  Is there a way lock down a client machine using AD or is it better just to buy some kind of Kiosk software?

There is ALOT of good info here on this
GPO's can lock it all the way down so the app launches, and nothing else works.

You can then do some fun stuff in the hosts file so only the site (assuming you have control over the IP's) is routable. Everything else doesn't work. You can even hide the address bar in IE.

Just use the Microsoft SteadyState to lock down the system based on the user logon.  It is the best free kiosk lock down out there!  It is free.
