An off the wall suggestion

There is a linux kiosk software called Webconverger (http://webconverger.org/). It is basically a live linux CD that will boot as a working kiosk, provided some tweeks are made. I think it's open source, and with some modifications (such as the ability to reset the browser every 15 minutes) it could...

Activity timer exit...does not exit

I'm setting a browser for a database computer that will automatically shut itself down and restart every 60 minutes. I go to the ACTIVITY timer and set it to true, and under ActivityAction, I set it to EXIT. However, the browser does not exit when the timer is done. The time whittles down to 0:01, a...

Issues with security

Hi folks. I'm trying really hard to erase the PWB history, but short of closing it down and restarting it, it's proving a very difficult thing to do. I've set the following in the ini: [Inactivity] InactivityTimer=True InactivitySeconds=60 InactivityMessageTitle=Warning InactivityMessageFile=Inactiv...

Thank you very much for the update. That was very quick of you! :) The password issue looks to be fixed, but the shit-f12 thing is not working, at least for me. Unlike HideGUI, Winbatten is not sending the password window to the front, and this cause problems with my installation of PWB (I have it m...

How do I....?

Hi there. Thanks for WinBatten 1.0.0.2, which seems to be working ok. :) If I hide the task bar with WinBatten, how do I get Winbatten out of user mode? Normally, I have to double click on the task bar to bring it up and click on 'disable user mode'. HideGUI has the shift-f12 thing, but how does tha...

Found the culprit!!!! And it's not PWB. Sorry about that. :oops: It's actually AutoRestart that's doing it, though I don't know why. I removed the PWB shortcut from the AutoRestart folder. AutoRestart was still being loaded from the run key, but it was loading only itself, not PWB. So, I ran Word, t...

A reprodusable problem with Word/Excel and PWB? Maybe?

Ok, this is a strange one, and I've been able to reproduce it on 3 machines with similar setups. These machines are word processing stations only, and in order for the IE to be blocked, I've giving it a proxy of 1.2.3.4, but I don't think that's the issue. This is what happens: 1. Created a PWB brow...

Thank you for the quick reply. :) Windows XP SP 2, fairly new system. I clicked on all the Hide GUI boxes (hide start button, hide taskbar, etc), and clicked on the 'Hide GUI Enabled' button. There are no error messages displayed. However, once in a while, when I click on the WinBatten icon in the t...

WinBatten instructions?

I know I'm going to regret posting this 5 minutes after it goes on the board, but honestly, I can't seem to run winbatten, and I was hoping someone could give me some clues. I have my stations being locked down via the use of a .bat file. In the bat file, I put the following command: START c:\pwb\Wi...

Thank you for the information!

One more thing. Are you aware of any way to close applications (such as Word and Excel) after a certain period of inactivity? This ability would be great in our word processing kiosk. :)

I'm using the auto restart built into PWB. I'm going to experiment again with AutoRestart, and hopefully I'll get a better result. The double clicking effect actually happens in the two xp machines in which I have replicated the problem. These are older machine running windows xp professional, with ...

Double-clicking desktop opens start menu?

One of my co-workers was testing the secure stations that I've treated with PWB and HideGUI and he made a very cool discovery. If you crash PWB (I think he did it by continously opening windows), and it doesn't restart (I haven't completly figured out how to use autorestart without it giving me two ...
