Unhappy Windows NT Policies

I've installed computers using windows nt, these computers are going into a department, but must be so to say locked down-meaning that the local user i created (TRS)-when the user log on to the computer that he cant fiddle around with any settings including the control panel, run command, display settings ect. I don't know much about nt. Is there anyway that i can lock down a user? basicly the only thing the user must do is logon-and use the application.

well, as long as you are the administrator, you can deside what he uses & does'nt use, you do all that through user accounts & permissions control.

well... i would recommened a server to run the boxes...i think that will manage better than manually setting the files and such um i would also recommend getting your self a Domain instead of a workgroup that will work better (use domain instead is you have a server)

You see that's the problem, the computers need the network to run one application, they don't need a domain, they also need restrictions-for users not to change any settings-can you help me to set restrictions on these pc that't on a workgroup-of course it wouldve been easier to put a domain in-but unfortunetly the old ones that's currently in the factory have restrictions on it-and are currently on a workgroup, but i can't trace the person who made the restrictions on those pc's, other problem is the fact that i work for a manager that wants me to put other pc's in the factory-but i'm not getting much help from him with this restrictions that i need to set on these pc's and i need to close this off. Do you know how to set restrictions on pc's that's in a workgroup?? Please i need urgent help here!!

there's many users, but only one that's going to login. There's a default user that i setup that's Called TRS-not setup as administrator, this is setup as a User-The many users that's using the computers are logging in as TRS with password TRS and workgroup as TRS. i need to restrict this user that's called TRS.
