Windows 7: lockdown pc except certain applications

lockdown pc except certain applications

I have a post-secondary student who will be taking his exams in our office. He uses a text to speech reader (TTS) along with whatever program his text requires. I want to lockdown the computer as much as possible.

For instance, one week he may need his TTS with word. The following week he may need his TTS with Excel and the internet.

What is the best way to lockdown the pc, based on the fact that each week he will need access to different applications?

The safest way is probably using group policy to set an application whitelist. It should stop any programs except the ones set up.
