Require a password to exit a presentation in PowerPoint 2007

I am setting up a workstation for the public to use in our office. PowerPoint seemed an easy choice. All I want them to do is be able to use the links on the screen to open a web page, and then be done with it. However, I dont want them to have the ability to exit the presentation.

Any ideas?

I would set the presentation as a Kiosk presentation. Do this in Slide Show | Set up Show. You will need to provide navigation for the user -- via action buttons or hyperlinks or something like that.

Then get Shyam Pillai's free "No Esc" add-in to prevent the Esc button from ending the presentation. http://skp.mvps.org/noesc.htm

Click the office button
Choose Save as
In the bottom left corner click on the tools button, choose general options.

Here is the 2 choices for passwords as listed above.
Password protect to modify, now the user will not be able to alter or exit the application.

A password won't prevent them from exiting the application.
