Hi guys is there software that allows you to boot straight into a frontend on a pc. (Without windows or any other operating systems).

Check out Groovy Arcade. Intended to run as a live CD but can installed on a hardrive or usb stick. 

Every FE is going to need some kind of OS running in the background but as I presume you want this as hidden as it can be then Groovy Arcade using Linux is a good choice. That said, the only giveaway is that my cab is running Win 7 is a bootscreen (which probably could be hidden if I bothered to look into it) and a brief flash of a mouse cursor on startup.
