1. Why did you mention Windows 7 Professional? I fail to find anything about this in the links above. Can you please point me to the right place?
2. I also fail to find any specific recipe to disable in some way Ctrl-Alt-Del. Moreover, I've seen another users asking the same question in the comments to the above articles... Can you please elaborate more on this too?

Have you found a reasonable solution for this scenario? I too am from a Library and am looking to accomplish the same goal. I have been using to this point a Windows XP platform with Steady State to lock down the environment and then Deep Freeze to reset
it every night, however with a new hardware platform am looking to find a reasonable Windows 7 alternative.
I am currently working with the "microsoft management console" and Group Policy in Windows 7. It is a little overwhelming in terms of how many possible settings you can configure, but I have successfully locked down one profile on one PC using Microsoft
Management console. I am about to try this on a second computer just using Group Policy from within the profile I want to lock down. To find these Group Policy settings in Windows 7, click on the start button and type "gpedit.msc" and go to User Configuration
and then Administrative Templates folder under User Configuration. I am NOT an expert on Group Policy and would recommend you do some research on the Microsoft site about Group Policy before changing any settings. It seems very easy to lock oneself out of
a PC with these tools, so please read carefully!
One option is a 3rd party software. We have used one call Fortres for years. The best part of this software is you have a hotkey that can be used to unlock the desktop make changes, then lock it back. Works great and not too expensive.
