Default program that only allows access to selected games?

Hi, are there any programs that allow me to lock Windows XP, and allow access to only a few selected game? Reason is because I've recently installed Catz 5 on my PC and my 3-year old bro is hooked on to it, but he's unfamiliar with Winxp, so he keeps messing up my desktop

To be specific, I'm looking for a program that works this way (or similar): on startup, it displays a menu of the list of programs that I have enabled to be displayed. If I want to access Windows, I have to use a password

Please let me know if there are any such programs around, thanks

I have used (at work for lab machines) a program called DeepFreeze. It allows you to lock a PC and then anyone can come along and do anything they want. They can delete any files they want. Move any files, whatever. When the PC is next restarted, its all back to the way you left it when you DeepFreezed it.
