Let me just "jump in" with a quick recommendation of Windows SteadyState for Kiosk scenarios. Version 2.5 (currently in Beta) supports Vista - a few minor bugs are present in the Beta version at the moment, but I'm sure it's going to be removed pretty soon. If you're just planning ahead, you might want to have a look at this nice utility too. http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/Protect-Public-Computers-Windows-Stea dyState-Part1.html http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/sharedaccess/default.msp x Regards /Jakob From: gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Darren Mar-Elia Sent: 22. januar 2008 16:04 To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Re: FW: newbe question Ronnie- Welcome to the list! The GPO common scenarios (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=354b9f45-8aa6-4775 -9208-c681a7043292 <http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=354b9f45-8aa6-4775 -9208-c681a7043292&displaylang=en> &displaylang=en) may be a good starting point, even though they don't explicitly cover Vista. Many of the concepts will be the same. I haven't seen anything specific to Vista yet. The "Kiosk" scenario specifically may be a good place to start for what you're after.
