Programs that will restore your computers to it's original state upon reboot. I have not looked recently to see if there is anything new but these are the ones I know about off the top of my head.
• Steady State: I tried it last year and there was some reason why it would not work. I think it was because there was no password protect function, but I could be wrong.
• Deepfreeze ( http://www.faronics.com/ ): Comes in several versions, the enterprise version allows for central management, including disabling and enableing computers. A must for labs.
• CleanSlate ( http://www.fortresgrand.com/ ): Very comprable to Deepfreeze enterprise. It seems more configurable but inturn more complicated. Castleton State College uses it.
• Returnil ( http://www.returnilvirtualsystem.com/ ): Does the same thing as the above. They offer their personal edition for free. I used this on my eeepc 7" because deepfreeze was incompatable with it.
