Setup Windows 7 as a Kiosk

I need to setup some Windows 7 computers in a shared environment. So the usual stuff like auto login, very limited rights, nothing saved in the profile etc.

In the old days I used to use Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit for XP. It was a great tool for doing exactly this. Is there something like that for Windows 7 or do I just have to follow one of those lists online of all the registry changes to tweak the rights?

Thanks

This may seem a little unorthodox, but you could setup auto login and slim down user rights via local group policy @ Start > Gpedit.msc > Computer Configuration > Windows Componets. After all those settings have been changed to fit your desires, create a user account for autologin and "break" the profile by deleting its SID under HKLM> Software > Microsoft > Windows > Windows NT > Current Version > ProfileList when logged in as administrator. This lets you install software and shortcuts when logged in as admin, but the user account will be logged in with a temporary profile that resets to default every time they log off.
