How does it work?

Im not sure How it works.  Its called clean slate. And its suposed to restore users desktops to the state they were in before the user went in and changed anything.  It sounds like a good idea.  But Im trying to add icons to users desktops.  I think the clean slate is deleting them so they dont see the icons when they log in.  I have placed the icons in teh all users foldeer for desk top.  And when that didnt work I Put the icons in the default user profile to be applied to the user when they log into the computer for the first time.  And nothing.  Where can I put the icons for users to see? And furthermore how would I go about installing programs?

- You can exclude folders that you want to manage (such as c:\documents and settings\all users\desktop). Every change you make on that folder will not being cleaned by clean slate.
- Or when you make changes(including installing program), you can review every changes made and make them permanent from within clean slate administration menu.

Addition :
- By default, if you're an administrator, Clean Slate should be disabled.
- To commit changes, in Clean Slate Configuration go to Commit Files Tree and Look at Modified List, Choose The file you want to commit the changes and press commit button, your committed files should appears in "Commit List" right below "Modified List"

There are a number of these apps, and windows has it's own built-in one, System restore... probably not as comprehensive as CleanSlate, DeepFreeze or Go-Back(symantec)... and M$ has another one called SteadyState: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/sharedaccess/default.mspx
They add a lot of overhead and administration when you first use them, I prefer to move users out of the Admin or Power Users groups and placed in the Users group so they can't install software that is not part of the standard image. This also mitigates virii and malware by 98%, we don't even run AV on our host's anymore! The only issues we have are users getting BHO's like Vundo, other than that, no infections. PC's are still scanned, but AV is not installed on them directly.

Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.
