Applications similar to Faronics Deep Freeze.

Experts, I am aware of Jungsoft HDD Sheriff, and Faronics Deep Freeze. Both does similar jobs, where HDD Sheriff is hardware based, and Deep Freeze is software based.

I am wondering if there are other applications out there similar to Deep Freeze (I am after software based solutions), but better than Deep Freeze? If you could justify or produce evidence, e.g. web sites with reviews / round-ups it will earn you Grade A award :-)

Deep Freeze doesn't work on nForce4 based systems. I would like to evaluate other alternatives, regardless of whether there's nForce4 issues or not.

MS has a Shared Computer Toolkit that has some similar uses. See http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/Microsoft-Shared-Computer-Toolkit.html It's not quite DeepFreeze but it's not bad either.

Fortres has a product called Clean Slate that's pretty decent. i don't have the link in front of me, but you can google it or check www.fortres.com

one thing i've seen in a number of places is a VMWare install just flush the image from the system as you need to.

Deep Freeze basically works by rolling back to the point of install, which you could do with citrix or vmware or a similar system like that.  if you're looking for a deep freeze clone that works on an nforce board, i don't know of what that exists, but you can get effectively the same thing with Citrix

noam_dz, the link you gave doesn't take me anywhere, I get the page cannot be displayed message, I've tried a few times, sorry mate.

rpalmeira22, you didn't really answer my question directly, but the stuff you listed were of interests to me :-) I like it !! Therefore I'll give you the points.

I've migrated to use ShadowUser instead of Deep Freeze, due to the incompatibility between Deep Freeze and nForce4 chipset.
