You can make a limited account, but I think that user will still have access to any program on that computer.

Someone correct me if I`m wrong.

How about setting up an admin account for management purposes and a standard user for the limited use - the trick is to then use parental controls to set up a white list for the limited use that contains only steam as allowed - you can also use the parental controls to limit the hours that the limited user can use the system.
