nothing very sophisticated, but my kiosk-plugin might be of help:

it basically lets you disable menus, shortcuts, puts a patch to
full-screen mode,...

i only ever tested it with linux, YMV on other systems.

also, it only fixes whatever an application can fix on its own. e.g.
low-level keyboard shortcuts, that the application doesn't even see,
e.g. [SysRq]+BUSIER) can't be intercepted.
