Shared Common Desktop, Multiple User Logins

I have a laboratory that has ten Windows XP Professional workstations attached to testing instrument. Currently they are just logged in with a local administrator account, and do not lock, nor is there any access control.

What I would like to do, is still use a common automatic login service account, but find some form of a software that can give me a level of access control - and that will use active directory. This way the screen is still shown and every user uses the same profile.

Thanks,

We currently accomplish this at my company with Imprivata multiuser workstation software. What we do then is set up a domain account to autologin to the domain and then another login window pops up from imprivata. It works similar to the windows lockscreen, but when one user logs in to the computer it doesn't log the other person off, they just share the same backround session. And Imprivata authenticates with AD. It might be a bit spendy if you only are needing it for 10 workstations.
