Locking down a laptop for only Internet Explorer use

Hi, I am looking for an easy way to lockdown an entire laptop and that only the Internet Explorer or Firefox can be used.

Something like a KIOSK mode.

Problem is that it has to be done on 3 laptops wich are currently been used in a corporate environment and only for 2 days be converted to something like the KIOSK mode, without harming the current environment.

Does anyone have any good and easy ideas about this?

I know it can be done by using policies and making a new user and adjust these policies, but i was hoping for an easier way.

why not use a live cd for the 2 days and not take any chances.  The users would not have any access to your data and no risk whatsoever

Thats a great idea, never thought of that one. Do you know a good livecd with Firefox or preferable Internet Explorer?

If linux will not be a problem, I think the best choice is Ubuntu live CD, since it recognizes all the hardware and it has a lot of utilities and software installed onit including internet browsers.

I still saw some trouble using a livecd because you still can find the local hard drive and mess that one up.

What i have done is locked down one user with policies, it was a challenge, but the user can only open internet explorer now and it worked perfectly.
