Administration-group policy editor-for XP pro-help

  1. I need to set a computer so that one account had very restricted access but i don't know how to only set it to only one account

    let me explain this computer is for a pre-school so one account 'staff account' will need to be a normal admin acccount while there will be the account that the kids will use (4 and under) so need very restricted access.
    i have had a look at the group policy edit but can't work it out

    also it's it possible to disable the restart button.

    idealy i won't want to use 3rd party programmes the idea was to use the group policy editor

    run command=gpedit.msc

    hum; I don't have SS installed, but would think that whatever is made available would be password protected (especially for Admin).
    If so, then you only need a strong password to keep the kids out.

    well looking though the setting i found a tick box for it in then end
    it would seem when you install SS it makes the admin account visable, you then have to tick a box to turn it off

    tnanks to all that help my problem is now solved-although i do wonder why XP has the group policy editor if it applys it to all uses?
