I am a network administrator for a small company. I have a question and hope you can help me.

Does anyone know how to set a domain based workstation as a workstation not to save anything after rebooting? I know it could be done, i have seen workstations are like that in our school's library. After we restart the computer, the windows will delete all the stuff that was saved on the computer and reboot as a original fresh installed computer.

    What you want is 'mandatory profiles' for your domain users.

    Depending on what OS your running its set up slightly differently.

    If youre running Win 2k server go here:
    Its pretty much the same for Win 2003 server as far as I know, any differences im sure you can figure out anyway.

    If youre running NT go here:

    And heres a great doc on user profiles:

    Good luck!
