Alternatives to Deep Freeze for all platforms with any license

  • Reboot Restore Rx

    Reboot Restore Rx makes it easy to maintain PC’s in small public access computing environments (classrooms, computer labs, kiosks, internet cafes, libraries, etc.). Every time you restart the PCs they will automatically reset to your predefined baseline setting. Reboot Restore Rx Professional, previously named Drive Vaccine, has all the features of the free version and in addition Restore Scheduling, Remote Management, Automated Updates, Drive / Registry Exclusion and more.

    • 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 • 13 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
