    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone knew of any Kioskware application that can lock down a PC to one application.

    Thanks,

    There are apps but you can do something similar anyway with local machine group policy and a registry frig.
    If you change:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / software / microsoft / windowsnt / currentversion / shell
    Change it from explorer.exe to something.exe and it will launch instead of explorer.
    This does not block ctrl alt del, thats where local machine group policy comes in.
    You may also need to add the location of your exe to the path environmental variable.
    Working in schools we have similar issues here with locked down machines.
