Windows 7: Need help with locking down Windows 8 Metro UI

Need help with locking down Windows 8 Metro UI

Hi guys,

I have got a pc that my whole family use and I've just completed a fresh Windows 8 Pro installation.

I have created 2 accounts:-

Admin
Kids

I know that Metro UI cannot be disabled and I don't mind keeping it, but surely if I want to be able to lock the kids account, so that they don't accidently mess up, I should be able to at least stop them from modifying app shortcuts and lockdown the Metro Start menu?

I currently have loads of apps, such as Admin tools, WinRAR etc.

If I setup the Metro UI to the apps I want, how do I stop them from removing/adding or modifying the menu?

Thanks
