Default Setting Computer Restrictions

Alrite ladies and gents, here is a challenge for you. I am running a stand alone Windows XP Pro computer SP1. I have a number of users set up for my house and office on it. I need to put some crazy restrictions on it. Here is what I want to be able to do:

Disable the "Run" command
Lock out some programs
Disable access to the "C" drive
Disable access to "Control Panel"
Disable right clicking (Only allow in programs, Word, Excel Etc.)
Allow a certain ammount of space

You get the idea...I want to be able to lock down my computer for these other users.

I have used programs that tweak the registry and stuff like that and they suck...I usually get locked out of the programs that I block. I would like a cheap alternative to this...prefferably freeware..
