Restricted Permissions User Web Access to  only one web site - Windows OS

I have a retail client with several PC's in her retail operation. The operating systems range from XP to Windows 7.
All of the computers need access to the internet but most of them only need access to their company's web page. The current browsers being used are mostly older versions of Internet Explorer but I can update t0 the latest version of IE or have them use either Chrome of Firefox.
I know I can set up non administrator users but can I also restrict users to be able to access only one site. They would have to be able to navigate within that site much like you would if you were to go to, say, Walmart.com.
If the answer is yes, how would I do that?

Normally I would do this through Group Policy.  Not sure if the pc's are on a domain and you mentioned that there are mixed operating systems so if you have any XP Home OS's, etc, GP is not an option.

Here is a work around that will do what you want and requires a password to change the settings or view websites other than the ones you want users to have access to.


You'll need to uninstall all other browsers also.
