    Locking an open application from being closed on guest account


    I need to run an application on a guest account that will be shown on a secondary monitor. My hope is that there is a way to keep anyone using the guest account from closing the window without an admin password. Any alternative ideas would be appreciated as well.

    Thanks in advance

    :)
