      CarlosMorales 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.

      DF and Reboot Restore do the same restore function on boot up

      This software is not useful in a public access environment as any user can disable it as a computer restarts. This renders any protection moot, eliminating an usefulness in maintaining a public access environment.

      It does as the name implies. Restores PC on every reboot, just like the Deep Freeze.

      Free version does what deepfreeze does. I use it on an w10 tablet for a kid, did not fail me yet. Tried other things but are either not free or not working as expected.

      ken_belanger Has more than one state to restore to (DF only has the one) but I prefer that in a lot of ways.

      CarlosMorales Different types of programs, while RollBack can do what Deep Freeze and Reboot Restore Rx do, it's less cost effective.

      Deep Freeze keeps an image of the system and reverts any changes upon reboot. Rollback is a system restore program not intended to be used in an enterprise environment, which is what Deep Freeze does.
