    In XP Pro not on a domain, how can I set policies for normal users to be very
    tight - so they cannot change any browser setting, change nothing on PC
    configuration including updates, no ctl alt delete? They will only be able to
    open IE Browser go to a web page for mail, etc.

    Change the authority level on the account, make it restricted.

    I don't know if the specific rights you want to control are there, but
    try going to Start->Programs->Administrative Tools->Local Security
    Policy and look in "User Rights Assignment"

    Depending on what you actually want to control, consider creating
    "guest" accounts.
