Tell me exactly what you want to use this for.
Is it for a internet cafe? I will then be able to give you the best solution.
Using group policy you can take out options within the start menu but cannot remove it totally.
If you want your computer to only start up internet explorer as soon as you turn the computer on, then you will need to play around with the system registry to do that, in order to disable explorer from lunching.
Go to Start/Run/Regedit and navigate to this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Download readystate from microsoft and play around with that, a very cool tool.

How to Enable Right Click on Desktop-Fixed


If you are having troubles with the context menu (right click menu), right clicking on the desktop doesnot do anything then most probably you have your group policies set to not displaying the context menu in windows explorer. You can change it in two ways. One from the group policy editor and one from the registry editor.
1- From Group Policy Editor
To re-enable your context menu from the group policy editor, go to Run –> gpedit.msc –> User Configuration –> Administrative Templates –> Windows Components –> Windows Explorer. In the right hand pane, find “Windows Explorer’s default context menu”, open its properties by double clicking it. If it’s enabled or not configured, disable it and your context menu will be back as soon as you apply this policy.





2 – From Registry Editor
To re-enable your context menu from the registry, go to Run –> regedit –> HKEY_CURRENT_USER –> Software –> Microsoft –> Windows –> CurrentVersion –> Policies –> Explorer. In the right hand pane find “NoViewContextMenu”, set its value to 0 if it exists. If you still can’t right click your desktop, then you can look for the same key here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE –> Software –> Microsoft –> Windows –> CurrentVersion –> Policies –> Explorer

HOW TO REMOVE GROUP POLICY FOR USEB RESTRICTION FOR CLIENT USER


You will need administrative access to modify any group policies.

From the command line run gpedit.msc. Since you are not listing a particular group policy I can only suggest that you bring up all settings, and then sort them by state. All enabled policies will rise to the top of the list. You can then disable or modify the policies as needed.

Why do i have to change my paswort all the time?


You might have it set to change at certain intervals
IE: at log in or after each restart .......

Disable password log in
On both PC and Mac computers, you can set up your system to automatically log in to a certain user account.
As a result, this setting will allow you to bypass the password login that is typically required.
You should only enable automatic login on your computer if it cannot be easily accessed by other people.

Open the Start menu and click on "Run."
Type "control userpasswords2" (no quote marks) into the dialog box and press the Enter key.

Uncheck the box next to "Users must enter a username and password" and click on the "Apply" button.

Enter the username of the account you want to automatically log in with and then type that account's password twice to finish setting up automatic login.

Click "OK." Password login has now been disabled.
Mac Instructions

Open System Preferences by clicking on the Dock icon.

Go to the "Accounts" control panel under the "System" heading.

Click on the "Login Options" button at the bottom of the window.

Select the account that you want to automatically log in with from the "Automatic login" drop-down menu.
Password login has now been disabled.

Depending on what operating system you have, there are several steps you must take in order to disable the administrator account and password on your computer.
Most often, the administrator account and password are disabled in order to minimize security risks on your computer.
This account is often the target of attack if your system is compromised, as it allows access to all of the data and programs on the computer.

In order to disable the administrator account and password, follow the steps below that are outlined for the major operating systems.

If you are using Windows XP, you must be logged on as the administrator in order to disable the account settings.
Microsoft suggests that you set up another account with administrator permissions in the event that you may need to reverse this process.
Otherwise, you won't be able to.
Right-click on the My Computer icon on your desktop and select manage.
Click Users under Local Users and Groups in the left pane, which will bring up all users on the computer.
Double-click Administrator and on the General tab, check Account is disabled.
This will disable the Administrator account and password for Windows XP users.
In Windows 2000, go to Start, select Programs and go to Administrative Tools.
Click on Local Security Policy.
Next, click on User Rights Assignment under the Local Policies option in the left panel.
Double-click Deny access to this computer from the network and then click Add under Local Security Policy Setting.
Click Administrator account under Users and Groups, then click Add.
Click OK to complete the disabling of the Administrator account and password.

In Windows Vista, the Administrator account is automatically disabled.
However, if you have enabled it, you will need to open a command prompt.
Go to Start Menu, click All Programs, select Accessories and right-click on Command Prompt and click run as Administrator.
Open the command box and type net user administrator/active:no. Press enter and you should receive a prompt stating the command was completed successfully.

If you are running a Mac, the Administrator account is enabled by default.
To disable the account and password, go to the Apple menu, click System Preferences.
Choose Accounts from the View menu and click the lock to authenticate with the administrator account password.
Click login options, click edit, and after clicking the lock in the Directory Utility window, click Disable Root User from the Edit menu.

My system restore has been turned off by a group policy "whatever that means"


Resolution 1. Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe and press Enter
2. Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ SystemRestore
In the right-pane:
  • Delete the value DisableConfig
  • Delete the value DisableSR
3. Exit the Registry Editor.
In Windows XP Professional, you can accomplish the above using Group Policy Editor as well.
1. Click Start, Run and type GPEDIT.MSC
2. Navigate to this path:
-> Computer Configuration
--> Administrative Templates
---> System
----> System Restore
3. Set Turn off System Restore to Not Configured
4. Set Turn off Configuration to Not Configured




For standalone Windows Vista systems, use these steps:
Using the Group Policy Editor
If your edition of Windows Vista includes the Group Policy Editor snap-in (gpedit.msc), follow these steps:
1. Click Start, type gpedit.msc and press ENTER
2. Go to the following branch:
Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | System Restore 3. Double-click Turn off Configuration and set it to Not configured.
Note: If the above setting is already set to Not configured, set it to Enabled and click Apply. Then revert back the setting to Not configured, and click Apply, OK.
4. Exit the Group Policy Editor.
Using the Registry Editor
1. Click Start, type regedit.exe and press ENTER
2. Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ SystemRestore 3. In the right-pane, delete the value named DisableConfig
4. Exit the Registry Editor.

If you set the Turn of configuration option to Enabled, the option to configure System Restore on the Configuration Interface disappears. If the Turn off Configuration setting is disabled, the configuration interface is still visible, but all System Restore configuration defaults are enforced, and the Create button is grayed out. If you set it to Not configured, the configuration interface for System Restore remains, and the user has the ability to configure System Restore.

My task manger is disabled by the administrator


For Windows XP Home Edition use "The registry edit & For Windows XP Professional you still use the option I had suggested which is:

• Click Start
• Click Run
• Enter gpedit.msc in the Open box and click OK
• In the Group Policy settings window
o Select User Configuration
o Select Administrative Templates
o Select System
o Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete options
o Select Remove Task Manager
o Double-click the Remove Task Manager option

I hope this Info has helped you.



or:
Click Start -> Run. Type in "regedit" (no quotes) and hit Enter.

Search for HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ System.

Look for: DisableTaskMgr. Click on REG_DWORD. Value: 1=Enable this key (disables TaskManager); Value: 0=Disable (actually enables TaskManager)

Close RegEdit

Reboot your machine.
