Default i need something, plz assist

ok, heres my problem. my grandma loves to play card games on the computer. so i got her a simple computer that is easily capible of playing such games. i got it all fixed up with her favorite games and gave it to her. well...she has this problem where she completely SCREWS IT UP...and then swears up and down she did nothing. she's kind of a senile grandma so i know she's screwing it up. ive fixed it countless times but still she continues to screw it up. frankly im tired of having to go through this process every time i see her. does anybody know of something i can install to completely limit the access of a user to nothing but running a few game shortcuts on the desktop so as to prevent any possibility of her screwing it up? any ideas or other solutions to this problem would be GREAT! thx

the shared user toolkit can limit basically everything except the things you want to have.
