    Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows XP

    Microsoft has released a security tool for the computers that operate in shared environments like schools, netcafes etc

    Microsoft created the Shared Computer Toolkit to help make shared computers more reliable and less time-consuming to maintain. Unlike personal computers, shared computers are:

    • Used by many different people who generally don't know or trust each other
    • Used in public places where personal privacy and security are big concerns
    • Subjected to greater wear and tear due to their frequent use and public availability

    The Shared Computer Toolkit is ideal for computers in schools, public libraries, community technology centers, and Internet cafés. It allows those who manage shared computers in these environments to easily:

    • Defend shared computers from unauthorized changes to their hard disks.
    • Restrict users from accessing system settings and data.
    • Enhance the user experience on shared computers.

    Excuse me, is there an airport nearby large enough for a private jet to land?

    Interesting, thanks for the heads up - I've got a few public access computers running here at work, and I've been locking them down with registry adjustments, etc. I'll have to take a look at this tool and see if it can save me some work on the front end when I go to set those machines up..
