How to prevent program installationWin98

By anth101 ·
hi, i just started my internet cafe and am frustrated with ppl keep installing 'unwanted' program on the computers. they sometimes include key-loggers, ram draining programs, or those beta ones that crash the system all the time. i have tried so many programs, restrick, net control, Desktop Orbiter and many more. ppl always seems to find a way to go around the security, like starting with saft mode, installing the same programs again which allow u to change the password, etc. because of this, ihave lost alot of cd-keys for my games and alot of customers with fear of having their info in the wrong hands. someone suggested Storm for windows is excellent but i cant find it on web any more. can anyone help? or suggest any programs to solve myproblems. thx

I beleive it is time for you to upgrade to XP. Win98 will no longer be supported by Microsoft in the very near future and XP offers you just the user restrictions you are looking for. The normal user privilages do not allow for software installations and can be locked down even tighter. Check your hardware and softwate to ensure that is compliant with Xp first.
