How to keep an application always maximized

We have a kiosk workstation running Windows 7 that runs a check-in application.  We need to keep this application maximized at all times and prevent users from accessing the desktop.  We set the application to initially open maximized, hid the bottom taskbar, disabled double-clicking, and disabled right-clicking.  However, users can still resize the application by clicking on the top tittle-bar and dragging the window down.  Is there a way to keep the application maximized at all times and prevent all resizing?

Just to clarify - maximized or full screen.  Either will work.  The workstation has a touch screen monitor with no keyboard attached and the virtual keyboard disabled, so we don't need to worry about keystrokes (such at CTRL+ALT+DEL).  We have everything locked down except for dragging down from the title bar.

The application isn't running in a web browser, so the first link doesn't apply to this situation.  I'll take a look at the software recommended in the second link to see if they can help.  Thanks.

The Inteset Secure Lockdown software isn't perfect, but I haven't found anything better to use.  I'll give it a try and see how it does.  Thanks.
