I'm configuring a Win2K Pro box as a public kiosk handling financial
transactions. It's in workgroup mode.

By default, I'd like the box to auto-logon as a particular user and launch
IE in kiosk mode (got that figured out), but still give me the option
interrupting the auto-logon and logging on as the administrator. I'd also
like to hide the start list and and task bar by default but invoke with
hotkeys. I also want to lock out public users from everything but IE.

Finally, is there a way to clear the cache and temp files following a
completed transaction at a particular web page. I'm concerned with liability
with regard to temp files created by the financial transactions of these
public users.

Thanks in advance!

Jim

Thanks, Steve. Figured out the auto-logon and kiosk mode. I've put the
public user account in the guest group. Is there any way to make the start
list REALLY hide, i.e., only retrievable with hot-keys. And finally, is
there any way that if someone EXITS the IE kiosk, that it initiates a log off
user? I'd really like to keep them off the desktop.

Thanks

Jim

Take a look in the group policy editor

Start
Run
type
gpedit.msc
click OK

You can pretty much lock it down to unusable levels .... although that
may be a bit extreme ;)  ... in there.

You'll find just about all the options you're seeking.
