Software that allows user to only access things i give permission for

Our school is going to have a fund raiser so i wanted to add in something that would help raise more money. I was thinking of turning the computer lab into a lan party area. The problem is that there is no guarantee what the students might do when they rent the computers, so i want to restrict them to only playing the game, nothing else. I was inspired by this interface i saw in an internet cafe in which you either select the browser or a game and do nothing else. I would like to replicate this interface, is there any possible method, like a software i have to install or something like that? Can you kind people recommend me anything of the sort?

    dude i dont need the tweaker , see for example, when we log into windows 7 we get to access all our files and installed programs but i dont want that, i want some software that makes a gui which outlines some programs which only i have given permission to can be seen
  2. I have my doubts you're gonna find something that fits your needs in terms of software. That is usually why we use thin clients

    but thats the thing i dont need a thin client cuz all the computers are independent with their own cpus, they arent dumb terminals
  5. Nono, i know what you want here. I'm just saying that you might have to tweak a guest user or whatever user you want to obtain this
