I want to setup login for database users to only login, have access open and allow them to enter information in the database.. I put a shortcut to the database in the start menu but i wanna lock out any other application.. ie, start button, run , ctl alt del... I was looking at this calcs program FOTC had posted b4 and this looks good but mite not be enough. I guess the systm would be more kiosk style but again only access to the database for entry.

You can go to Start>Run and type gpedit.msc to modify the local group policy. You can cut down the start menu to what you want and restrict access to control panel and editing of any desktop properties. Be cautious to not lock yourself out of anything.
