Windows 7: Disabling Google Chrome browser sign in

Disabling Google Chrome browser sign in

Hello everyone. I'm working with many shared computers on a domain, and there has been a huge issue with privacy lately. When people use Google Chrome for things like Gmail, it automatically signs them into the entire browser. Because of this, there have been many instances of hijacked Google accounts, people going through another person's personal data, and even a few instances of a person's entire Google account being deleted. Now I normally use Firefox, and I know that won't actually sign a user in to the actual browser, but I can't seem to find an option to disable this for Chrome. I really need some sort of solution for this, because it is getting out of hand. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

Hi, ThrashZone. Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately our department isn't allowed to modify Group Policy settings. I wish we could, as that would be an excellent solution. So there's no other way to do this then?

Not really,
Not unless you come in after everyone is done and delete cookies and browser history for them

The only other option is to make each person their own standard user account on the machine ?
Then I believe only the administrator has the ability to access all other standard user accounts,
But each user still has to be restricted so they can not make or change the existing user account status from standard,
Possibly a bunch of separate Guest accounts to each person ? standard users might have to many permissions to change settings ?
I'm sure others might contribute stand by,

Chrome is pretty easy to setup to delete everything on exit or when a user closes the browser but users changing that setting that's something that doesn't seem easy to control ?
