PC Security

I have just been given the job at work of ensuring the few - non-networked PCs we have aren't 'interfered with' or misused. I guess I need to prevent use of Control Panel and access to system files as well as prevent any unapproved software being loaded. You know the sort of thing. Can anyone suggest or recommend any software?

Thanks

If it's XP Pro, you may be able to do it via group policy.

But, Windows is generally insecure to anyone that knows what they're doing. Never-the-less, you can lock it down as far as the casual user is concerned.

click here will lock the control panel.
click here costs around $30 but is very good.
