I work for a affordable housing 501c3 that provides home ownership opportunities to lower income residents. We are looking to set up public use computer that will be available to anyone living in our mobilehome park. However, we are looking to install a kiosk type of software that requires a username and password for use that will protect the machine's operating system from user manipulation as well as filters certain
inappropriate websites. I am hoping that this software will also, "wipe" the machine clear of any downloads, saved items or other user data after each use.
Thanks for sending me any ideas you ma have!

www.antamedia.com/kiosk came recommended to me, but I haven't used it myself. Windows 8.1 has these features baked in, by the way, in a feature called Assigned Access.

Thanks Isaac for the info. I will definitely look into these two ideas!
There are several linux distributions with guest mode. I have used slax in the past for building kiosk for public library use. Content Filtering can be done easily via OpenDNS
