How to limit PC Usage to POS & Internet Explorer?


I am a small business owner (Verizon Wireless Retailer)

And would like to limit my employees to only a few select programs and IE websites.

For example we would need access to

-RQ4 (Our POS)
-Microsoft Office
-Adobe Reader
-Internet Explorer

I would also like to limit the websites they can use to about two sites.

Any and all help would be appreciated!

Thank you,
Danny T

Welcome Djt511 to the windows 7 forums.

One problem that I see is that if you allow Internet Explorer, they can go anywhere and run most anything.

you can even browse the hard disk if they put the C:\ in the command line of the browser. they can then navigate to anyplace on the hard disk and execute a program.

Might be better to get a good firewall and anti-virus either that or network filter like baraccuda or something cheaper.
