Controlling Start Menu / Internet Explorer

    I need to create a public workstation that will only display our website and
    allow access to no other websites. Our router doesn't have any website
    filtering, so I am wondering if there is an XP file that I can modify to
    prevent access via IE to any but one website that I specify (i'd prefer not
    to have to purchase netnanny or something like that). ALSO, how can I modify
    the Start Menu so that the user has no options if they right click on the
    start button, I want to remove the Run command, control panel, pretty much
    everything but Internet Explorer. Please advise - Thanks.

    Providing you are using XP Pro the windows configuration can all be managed
    using group policy editor
    click [Start] [Run] and type [gpedit.msc]

    As for the web site restriction I will pass on that question.
