Vista Login Question

I have a computer in our church auditorium that any of four people are able to run during worship services. I would like to have no login and only one desktop but have only one admin account whose password is not common knowledge. Is this possible? If so, then how?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
