Perhaps you should also consider testing a Linux Distro.

Although not really designed for such an environment, have you looked into using the Win 7 thin client? You can install it on a non-networked computer, however, there are other "features" which may negate its use.

Another alternative which is certainly worth investigating is using a Linux variant. Even 5 years ago, Linux versions were rather primitive, however, nowadays there are some very good linuix versions. In fact, as much a fan as I am of Win 7, I would be installing a linux in your situation.

Corrine,
Yours came in while I was sending mine.
Let us just say that great minds think alike.

They sure do!

One of the forums I admin has an excellent Linux Forum (Scot's Newsletter Forums -> Bruno's All Things Linux). All new members are carefully vetted due to Scot's position as Editor in Chief at Computerworld. However, if you should need help and decide to register there, a search for "Bram van Kampen" would bring up this thread and you'd be ushered right in.

"... your computer is very dangerous and not safe."

Just don't give it any weapons or sharp objects.

It's possible but the virus would have to be introduced by the administrator. It sounds to me the computers are on a closed network without access to the web--Basically a terminal. Besides that, a user would have no way to "install" a virus.

The program that you have that works great on XP, 98, 98 can't that same program be changed to work with Windows 7. The odds of changing Windows 7 to work with a very old program are slim to none. Yes I understand their would be a cost to have a new program created. To the best of my knowledge Microsoft does not create new operating system to work with 30 year old programs. I'm sure their are people that could write you a program that would work with the new Windows 7.

Actually, I'm not sure what the problem is?

you should be able to make a couple of tweaks and be on with it!

Maybe if you were more specific about what problems you are actually having? Exactly what isn't working right?

I see one, the use of INI files in the program folder. You have two options. Install the program OUTSIDE the /programs(x86) folder OR after installing, change the permissions on the program folder appropriately.

You can turn off the firewall or punch a hole in it for your software.

If you are doing dozens or hundreds of these things you can set up one machine exactly the way you want it, then sysprep it and basically clone it to multiple hard drives so you don;t have to set everything up on each machine.

So... IS there something specific? We can help on a question by question basis, but something as overly broad as "Turn all security off" is not going to get you the answers you need since that is simply not possible.

I did not mention anything about Registry Booster. I do not recommend any 3rd party program that does anything to the registry. I'm as sure as I can be that a program can be wrote to satisfy the OP's needs using Windows 7 but then again I'm not a program creator. Their are probably a few members on this forum with the proper information and desire could do it.

An excellent advice, Corrine. As you can see i am using Linux Mint 10 and i am usually surfing with it. Even if you order a CD to install it the costs are practically negligible.

Remove folder from "Turn Windows Features on or off" in control panel
I'm looking for a way to actually remove the folder for "Games" under "Turn Windows Features on or off" in Control panel. We need to completely remove the folder from the list so that our users can't just go in and re install the games. Thanks.
