Software to wipe a Windows session (not a complete restore) after logoff/restart

I have been using Deep Freeze and it seems quite good but it completely restores the ENTIRE workstation's image.
Is there an alternative solution that just restores the Window's session (user profile's files, settings, browsing history etc) and keeps the programs intact?

You can also create what are called "ThawSpace" locations on a machine with DeepFreeze:


I don't know that this could be used for software installations, though, as the point of DeepFreeze is to limit the after-the-fact programs that could be installed on a PC and cause issues. It's one of the faults of software like DeepFreeze as it's real intended use is to create an image that is used for a single or pre-determined set of tasks.
