I was wondering if any knows of a program that will remove and programs installed and revert registry changes when a user logs off.  I need to make sure that whatever changes a user makes during their window session that program files and registry are restored to their original state.  Would it make more sense just to remove all user rights?

It would be easier for administration to revoke access to users using a policy ..

Deep Freeze (http://www.faronics.com/html/deepfreeze.asp) can do that. There may be free alternatives but I don't know any.
