I take it your running a Windows OS probably Windows 7, and with Windows even if you set everyone on limited control they can still download their perfered browser and pictures i think, you might try setting parental controls that might work but if they are real good on a computer they can get around it.

How about pre-install chrome and firefox too, set up the same features as IE
