I would like to create a user with EXTREMELY limited access on my PC. The PC
that I want to do this on is an XP Pro machine that does not connect to a
domain, it is in my home office. It is my main desktop computer. I would
like to create a user that can log in and launch one program and that is it.
I would like this user account to log in and on startup iTunes will start up.
I do not want the user to be able to use anything else. The purpose is that
this PC can be the jukebox and anyone can choose songs without causing any
damage to my PC. It would have to have read access on the MP3 folder and run
access on iTunes. What is the best way to implement user policies to
accomplish this?

How can I do this per user using gpedit.msc. I don't see any options in
there to only have the changes effect one user and not all users. I don't
want to lock myself out of the computer. That webcast you recommended did
not discuss this at all.
