Program to make the PC A jukebox?

Hey all!

Does anyone have a program they know of to make the computer act like a juke box? We have a computer in our basement and when we throw parties right now we just use iTunes. I would like something that would take up the whole screen so friends of friends of friends cant snoop around the computer.

I assume you are just loading a playlist or the whole library and letting it play randomly. If so easiest solution would be to just put a password on the account being used and set a screen saver (or just leave it blank), and lock the account (Windows key+L) and leave the music playing.

I want people at the party to be able to choose music so a lock or screen saver wont work

This is how I'm doing it, although this tip is for WMC:

1. Open Start Menu > Run
2. Type c:\windows\ehome\ehshell.exe /directmedia:music /noshutdownui /mediamode
3. Hit Enter
4. Disconnect keyboard & mouse

This opens WMC in full screen modus directly in Music Library, disables shutdown and minimize buttons and removes shutdown option from WMC menu. Use remote to control WMC.
