Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows XP
Microsoft have released a Beta of Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows XP which allows users to essentially lock down a shared computer so that setting and programs can not be altered. It allows you to apply Active Directory style Group Policies and Mandatory Profiles so workstations are secure. It has an easy to use User Interface (UI) and is primarily aimed at home users with troublesome children or small schools who do not have centralised security.
There is a great video over at Channel9.MSDN.com which explains it all. Remember it is a Beta so ensure you back up your data before you install it.
