Dear Sir,

Our company would like to create a kiosk using Windows 7. The purpose is let public user to visit our company's website.

We would like to allow the public user's can only using IE11. Besides this, users cannot run command prompt or start another program but admin does. Any recommendations for me? Security Template? or Best practice? Guidelines?

Thank you very much.

With regards,
Wataw

disable all unwanted apps using GPEDIT.MSC   on command prompt (group policy) of local machine if it's single machine .  

or created RDP or Applications server  publish single application  like I.E 11 boot the console with thinclient o/s ... etc. there are so many options

just install and allow access to IE11 only.

all the best
