    XP limited account not secure enough!

    I have a number of stand-alone workstations in a classroom running Windows XP Professional.

    I have started afresh with user accounts for the new school year - now summarised into 3 categories - those being 2 subjects (restricted limited account) and 1 admin account (obviously full access) for me.

    Is there any way (preferably free) to fully secure the limited accounts? I mean stop the students changing wallpaper, deleting programs from start menu, adding shortcuts to desktop etc? Is there a way to enforce a particular wallpaper after start up?

    I'm planning to install a freeware program which shuts the computers down at a certain time of night, I just would like something to stop silly changes being made.

    Thanks! Just what I wanted. I have a problem though when attempting to download it - due to our "managed service" I can't get Windows to be authorised as genuine.

    Oh well, a download for home I guess!
