Securing a software by minimizing access to Windows XP GUI RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm interested in supplying a software I developed, installed on a laptop with Windows XP pro.
    In order to maximize the security, I would like to disable any access of the user to the operating system.
    When the computer starts up - my application starts (without windows GUI visible or accessible to the user) and when my application goes down, the computer is shut down.
    While the last demand (shutting down) should be easily achieved by adding this feature to my application, I can't find a way of implementing the firs part. Further more, how can I access the OS (as admin), in case maintenance is needed.

    I would greatly appreciate any help in minimizing the access to my installed application folders and hence minimizing the chance of damaging the system or messing up with my core files.

    Thanks,
