    it would be easier to use the permission settings under sharing in the property tab of each application you want to restrict .
    Just right click the programs main folder in Explorer.
    Be sure to log on as Administrator.

    how would I go about disabling things like the "Run" or "Search" function in the start menu? disabling the ability to right click with the mouse?

    well, google is your friend amongst other things. As admin you can always restrict a user profile, and the rest can be done via reghacks (usually using regedt32, not regedit)

    a few things I found through google...

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoRun"=dword:00000001

    Paste the above into notepad and save it as norun.reg

    The way it is now it will only change the account you are logged on. Change "CURRENT_USER" to "LOCAL_MACHINE" to make the change system wide
