    • Free version does a great job of maintaining systems, and does hide the program for non-Admin users to prevent them from uninstalling. Paid version is also good, and when we purchased was less than the cost of Deep Freeze. CarlosMoralesDec 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • Similar feature set, has a free version, and has a free RMC tool :) ken_belanger13 days ago Disagree   Agree

    • Different types of programs, while RollBack can do what Deep Freeze and Reboot Restore Rx do, it's less cost effective. CarlosMoralesDec 2016 Disagree   Agree
