Thanks

    In a mfg environment, we needed to lock down computers on the mfg floor. Earlier versions of windows you could replace explorer.exe with another program. We had a developer create a program in java, push all the requirements down from a PDC, and when the computers turned on, the custom java program launched with buttons for the mfg software we wanted them to run.

    not sure if this gives you an idea or not. Also if this is overkill for what your looking for, google group policies in windows.
