There are multiples ways to do this and there are many programs that would create Kiosk mode station but I found this way to be the easiest way.

Create a batch program - Logon to the computer using the user you want restrict. You may have to give the user local administration rights to do this.
e. Open a notepad or any other text editor
f. Insert this code and setup program to open using the full program path.

@echo off
start /b "Bootstrap" "C:Program Files (x86)programnameexefile.exe"

g. Save the file as Shell-Start.bat in the root of c: drive

h. Open the registry and set this key

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon]
�Shell�=�C:Shell-Start.bat�
