the internet but not other programs? since when was the internet a program? could you describe what programs you actually wish them to be able to access, and which not. ultimately if users are at that level, then surely just not having them on menus in the first place would suffice. what's the harm in them being able to access text editors or whatever, it's not liek they could actually damage anything

well there are loads of ways... if it is JUST this one application, then i'd suggest using a minimal window manager like fluxbox. then you can remove the menu altogether and just load up a copy of whatever web browser you want. As before though you can't just let them use "internet" that just doens't make sense, you simply restrict them to a certain app which is a web browser...
