I am looking for a way to have a secure website that serves up documents that can be viewed only. the user would not be able to print, copy , printscreen any of the docs. When they are done it would remove any type of footprint from the local machine. Does anyone know of any type of software that would allow me to do this?

This is not possible.  You'd need total control, physical as well as virtual, to do this - and even then it would be quite costly.  The hardest part would be to ensure that the client machine would not be able to create a screen dump (print screen).  

Can I ask what kind of content you are hoping to protect?

PS:  You didn't say whether you have full control over the potential client?

Yes it needs to be. No I do not have control of the client -

If you do not control the client then no it cannot be done.

You can try and restrict print and copy functions using Digital Rights Management (so the document only opens in a client that honours the DRM) but it would do nothing to stop the user from taking a screen dump.
