Network authentification (against a server).
You can reach some level of security with the windows policy editor
(poledit) - users can still log in, but can't run the control panel,
cannot install/remove hardware and things like that.
To secure your files, you can use a pgp-disk (you files are encrypted
ans password-protected with 'pretty good privacy').
