Best possible solution for guest pc on a hotel

Hi!

We have a customer, which is a hotel.
They need a guest pc, which the guests on the hotel will use to surf etc.

It's typical that theese computers are being filled with bloat/spyware/virus after some time in use.
What's the best solution to use on a computer like this?

I was first of all thinking of using windows 7, and a standard desktop computer.

Any suggestions? :-)

create a guest account and limit user access level.

Agree with sekarc4u. Create a guest account with limit user access, so they are not able to install any programs. Also install a good anti-virus and anti-spyware software.

Also use a good firewall to deny access to certain sites and ports.

Maybe it is wise to create an image from a fresh installed PC for back ups. Once a PC is getting slow you put back the image and update the anti-virus and anti-spyware software.

i suggest install the  internet protection software bundled with AV and block certain sites which may harm the machines and let the guests login to guest user.

I would use Kiosk Software, google the term "Bullet Proof Kiosk" and take a look at what it can do.

MojoTech: It looks promising, and i will try it on a VMware win 7 machine later to see if it fits our customer's need.

The first thing that comes to mind is Microsoft's SteadyState; unfortunately that isn't supported on Windows 7.
This article discusses the possibilities to configure a steadystate-like Windows 7 installation:

We ended up with using a Linux system, which suited the purpose better.
Closing question.

We found it best to use Linux instead of Win 7.
