On a windows 2003 data server with a 2008 domain controller, I have several Terminal Servers that are setup to only allow one remote time entry program to run. Totally locked down from network / internet (Kiosk Mode). Now I need to be able to view pdf files in a directory. How can I do this without giving access to the disks that are available for the time entry program to write back. The time entry requires a mapped drive with read/write access. Every pdf viewer I have found so far gives the ability to "File Open/Save as" and thereby gives access the the shared drive. If I use an Internet Browser then I have the same problem. Any help is appreciated.

They must be PDFs? If so, then you can use an open source PDF library to create your own viewer that does not include file browsing.
