The Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows

The Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows was designed to help administrators better manage and secure public computers, such as those in kiosks, libraries, Internet cafes, schools, etc. But the toolkit is useful for any situation in which multiple persons use the same computer, including family computing and small business offices where several employees must use the same machine. This article shows you how to get and use the toolkit, which is in beta testing at the time of this writing.
