I want to create a Point of Sale type app for a computer for one of my clients. I don't want anyone to be able to do anything else but use that app. No accessing the start screen, no control-alt-delete, nothing. Is there a way to do that using Windows 8 (or possibly in windows 7 where I can have a starting point to figuring it out for windows 8)?
