I gues you already have enough good suggestions on the first two
issues. Now for the password. I think you could create a firewall that
would deny any X11 packets for closing netscape. Then you could add some
tool that would request a password, and if it finds it acceptable it would
change the firewall rules to permit netscape "delete_event". You have a
severe problem. You would need to read tons of documentation (esp. if you
follow my suggestion). I would be curious to know if you succeed to solve
it (and mostly HOW?).

Sorry, I can't offer anything better,
