I am trying to build a ticket kiosk. In my prev questions, it was suggested that I use a desktop PC running on Win 7 Professional.

I will then enable auto login and local group policy to restrict applications that can be run.

My next question is, should I enable auto update? And do I still need to install an anti virus software?

Any other recommendations are welcome.

TIA

Hi,

You can configure the Windows Update services so that restarts aren't automatically invoked - perhaps you coulc then schedule a restart of the PC during the night when it's not in use?

What sort of connectivity are you using between the PC and your network - VPN over ADSL, Mobile phone in unit etc?

I would recommend malware protection as a standard - if you go for a more advanced offering that replaces Windows Firewall, then that is an option but again consider how and where will the updates come from?

You have the option of a centralised approach if you are deploying a large number of Kiosks so you can control updates, when they occur etc.

Regards,


RobMobility.
