    log in as admin, and run gpedit.msc (start->run-> type in gpedit.msc).
    from the user configurations you can disable most windows features (like installing, deleting etc).
    i don't know if you can limit what software people can and cant use, maybe youl need a 3rd party software for that.

    I'm not really sure, anyway here is a complete list of all the managements, maybe there is something there to help you.

    Computer Management - compmgmt.msc

    Disk Managment - diskmgmt.msc

    Device Manager - devmgmt.msc

    Disk Defrag - dfrg.msc

    Event Viewer - eventvwr.msc

    Shared Folders - fsmgmt.msc

    Group Policies - gpedit.msc

    Local Users and Groups - lusrmgr.msc

    Performance Monitor - perfmon.msc

    Resultant Set of Policies - rsop.msc

    Local Security Settings - secpol.msc

    Services - services.msc

    Component Services - comexp.msc

    Password Control - control userpasswords2

    worst case scenario you will have to use a 3rd party software, there are many like that, look at google or at any decent download site.

    You have to put the users in the group that you are setting policies for. Otherwise you have to edit each user individually.

    Ok you can do some real damage here.

    gpedit - computer config, windows settigns, security settings, software restrictions.

    You can make system, program files, etc directories inaccessible.
    You can create your own access rules under actions on top menu.

    Have fun. Not wanting to trash my computer tonight I have not tried these myself...
