Windows 7: block video playing on computer

Hi there
the only way this type of stuff would be possible is to

1) lock access (write access) to the "C Drive" apart from a temporary folder

2) restrict Internet access except for Workplace permitted sites.

3) block the use of DVD / CD drives and other external media.

restrict the user from installing / modyfying the system.

This won't work 100% but should lock down the computer pretty tightly. Don't let the user have ADMINISTRATOR rights either.

Cheers

Also should add booting off an Ubuntu live cd to watch stuff or virtualizing.
