Hi,

I was wondering if there's a way to permanently hide the taskbar/start menu
for certain users. I need to run a particular application for certain users
and I don't want them to have access to the taskbar and start menu, or
anything else in the OS for that matter.

Thanks

Maybe you should ask some of the folks that can't find their Taskbars. ;-)
