    • 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 • 12 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree

Bad software

Rubbish software that slows drastically Windows and which bugs reported by ticket are never treated.
Faronics seeks each year to collect more licensing fees. The perpetual license is not renewed for reasons unknown.
Windows updates management is not supported in the Standard version and PC puts considerable time to redo several times the same updates when stopping and starting Windows.
