I'd like my windows 7 computer to use ONLY a single application developed in .net No task manager, no nothing: just this single application automatically opening at startup.

I'd also like to have a special key combination or any other trick to enable another user to be normal administrator (with all the functions) for fixing problems (a computer tech account).

How can I achieve it using windows 7 technology or free products?

The common term is to make it into a kiosk style machine.

Then you can find a few guides via a search engine.

I found this guide that looks promising, uses local group policy to restrict applications being launched, that combined with your application starting up on initial log in sound like a good start
