Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit

Thought this was interesting, the Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit has been released in Beta.
This tool is primarily designed for small businesses in order to help them lock down their shared computers even if they don't have Active Directory.

The main tools are as follows.

A Windows Disk Protection Tool designed to protect the core operating system and program files from being permanently modified;

A Windows Restrictions Tool that allows for the tailoring of individual users' profiles. Among the variables that can be locked down: access to the command prompt, Internet Explorer settings and the Registry Editor;

A User Profiles Tool that enables the simple creation and deletion of user profiles on a shared computer;

An Accessibility Tool that lets users customize their environments with things like high-visibility backgrounds, StickyKeys, etc.

The toolkit will work with the Windows XP Service Pack 2 release of XP Home, Professional or Tablet
