I have a Windows XP system. How can I block the limited users to access everything other than just the installed applications?

The administrator should get all the features.

Use Local Group Policy Editor to set a Group Policy for your local computer. You can allow access to defined applications, limit access to directories, programs, registry settings etc. Group policies are what they use in large corporate environments to lock down computers connected to their networks.
