Sure -- there are two basic options:

1.  Unplug it's Ethernet cable, remove any WiFi and other network 
interface devices.  Limit its functionality to tasks that do not 
involve handling sensitive or valuable data, etc.

2.  Replace it with Win 2K or XP.

"secure" and "Win ME" are phrases that do not belong in the same 
sentence without an appropriately-placed negation.  Anything else is 
delusion...

You're welcome.
