Windows "Microsoft's free Shared Computer Toolkit lets you configure a PC that can be used to search the Internet, look up resources, and run approved programs; it also stops users from making permanent system changes, running arbitrary programs, or introducing malware. Administrators on domain-based PCs have long been able to do this; the toolkit offers a similar level for any PC. You don't need an IT degree - the kit leads an administrator through the steps of locking down a system."

I'm actually planning to put this on my uncle's computer tomorrow... He'll never need admin access and my little cousin is always dicking around and installing spyware-laden games. Now my cousin can install the games and it won't affect a thing! Woot! indeed.

I'll report back in a few months to tell how it all worked out.
