Restrict remote desktop users from downloading information to their own desktops

I want to setup a stand alone remote desktop server (TS) using server 2008, it won't be attached to the domain and just used to view information.

I don't want users to be able to copy to their clipboard, print, see their drives or if possible print screen, the last one I know may be difficult but I thought I'd throw it in there.

I've tried restricting it through group policy through the server but it's made no difference.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Note the below on a user need to be part of 'remote desktop users' group

In RD Session Host Configuration (tsconfig.msc), double-click RDP-Tcp.  On the Security tab, Add your new local group with Allow for User and Guest access.  

Use the MMC console and Add/Remove Snap-in to select Group Policy Object Editor. Under that, you have the option to select either Admin or Non-Admin and then make modifications to local group policy. So if you choose Non-Admins, you can (for example) remove unwanted items etc, without modifying my Admin group. Having said that, without being on a Domain or using GP in an Active Directory, it's may be restrictive and challenging.
