The "concept" is to display only what is needed , and be able to access the Preferences Window only by entering a password as to "protect" any guest from modifying the layout.

The Context menu selections can be selected in the Preferences Window (Display > Context Menu).  - this is where I disabled the Properties option among others.
Be aware though that if you press the Shift Key ,this option is overridden and you are presented with the full expanded context menu.
There is no way to make it "read only" - you should hide it.
Consider using the JScript Properties script that is included in the samples that doesn't let you make any modifications to the files.

And also hide the File menu. Imagine a guest opening e.g Add Files... and selecting the files in the selection box and pressing delete..... 

Also remove any keyboard shortcuts that could compromise the "safe mode".

Amazing. Great job @zeremy . That's all I have to say. ;)

Dumb question maybe : how to hide the File menu ? I thought menus couldn't be hidden with DUI. Is that why you bundled CUI with your package ? And how to hide it then ?

I don't know how or if its possible in DUI.
CUI has option not to show toolbars, status bar etc..
