    Does anyone know of a way to lock a web browser onto one web site?
    I am having an open house and want to showcase our website without others surfing the web.

    Why not make sure you are disconnected and have a copy of your site on the hard drive or on a CD?

    It will also be a lot faster than the web

    Many security programs are out there. I would suggest heading over to ZDNet (http://www.ZDNet.com), heading to 'downloads', and doing some quick searching. I believe you'll find more than you need to lock web browsers, desktops, and much, much more.

    Hope this was of some assistence!

    I'd definitely go with the idea of saving a local version to your hard drive (and read protecting all the files lest someone decides to get smart with the 'view and edit source code' option).

    Securing bowsers is incredibly hard to do - and there will always be people around your stand or whatever who want to check their hotmail...

    Thanks for the ideas...I had planned on using a security type device but the server crashed right when the "show" was about to start. Luckily I had a copy on CD and used that(if no one had suggested that I would have been hurtin'). Once again, thanks.
