I'm in the process of setting up a touchscreen kiosk system for work.  I currently have the system set to boot into the Kiosk account so that user is only able to access the metro app Internet Explorer and that app has its homepage set to the site I want users to access.  I have blocked all other domains/applications so the user can only access that page.  The problem that I'm running into is I want this set up so that w/o me touching the machine I want it to come back to the home page every few minutes.  I would also like to restrict user access to the address bar.  Basically I want to set this machine up so it boots up to the website and that is the only thing that the user can do with the machine.  Would anyone be able to advise me on how I can get this done?


My current configuration is such that the computer boots up into the Kiosk account.  It then launches the IE application and goes to the website.  All other sites are blocked from access from that account but users are still able to enter them into the address bar which takes my terminal away from the site that I need it to automatically return to for the next user.  Is there a way I can take away the address bar or set the terminal to automatically return to that site periodically?  Thanks in advance.
