Why oh why won't Microsoft make a Steady State for Windows 7? Even when users don't have administrative access to a Windows 7 desktop there are still a multitude of ways to waste time or foul things up. My biggest concern is time wasting - I've seen staff try their hand at ASCII art, figure out how to invoke supposedly hidden applications, and do anything but get their work done using the computer.
If you've been itching to make your Windows 7 computer into a system that may only perform just a few tasks consider Inteset Secure Lockdown V2 - it's not free, but it will more than pay for itself in reduced headaches and increased productivity!
