I need to come up with a Steady State like solution for 15PCs that can be managed centrally or via GroupPolicy. Steady State is still available for XP but Windows 7 is supposed to have Guest Mode built in that I can't find in W7 Pro.

What other affordable solutions are out there that can be easily managed taking into consideration that ms updates need to be installed and other system changes may need to be applied so flexibility in this regard is needed

Thank you

Peter

No Guest mode in Win 7 or SteadyState unfortunately.
