You can lock down the users using Group Policies, You have the ability to specify very granularly what a user can see and access when logged into Terminal Services.
There will be multiple policys you will need to adjust. The 2 users should be put in a specific group for only them and the Group policy should be applied to the group.
Start by creating a new GPO.
There are tons of MS KB articles dealing with GPO's so start here and work your way through all the items you want to do. The following link gives some good broken down information as well.
