Ticket Kiosk OS Configuration

In my previous question, it was suggested that I install Win7 Professional on a desktop pc used for ticket kiosk.

The application which will serve as the user interface will be running on .NET Framework 4.0

My next question is how should I configure the OS. It shouldn't ask for user login at startup (auto login?). What type of user should I use? How do I disable all notifications or pop up messages? Should I disable automatic updates? Do I need to install an antivirus (since it might prompt to restart the pc after a major update)?

I am also open to any other suggestions.

TIA

So I should enable auto log in as guest. Then restrict the apps using Local Group Policy editor.

Is that right?

And does local group policy apply to all users or can I specify the policy for each user?

Hi,

If you are domain joined, then you can apply a Group Policy to different users etc.

If you enable a local policy, then it applies to all users (including Administrator) but I believe there is a workaround for that.

Regards,


RobMobility.
