Scheduled Image Backup Software

One of my users frequently corrupts their operating system due to the websites they visit.  Unfortunately, these websites are part of this employees job.  Is there a software package that can automatically take a image of the entire computer on a scheduled basis?
This is a windows 10 environment.  I'm ok with paid software.  I just want something stable with a proven track record.

Hi,

Why don't you consider using a VM of The OS for that part of the job and use snapshots or a cloned image when it corrupts?

Virtualbox would do the job or if it's a later version of Windows Pro, HyperV is in-built.

Any imaging software is stable, proven, whatever you need.

Free: windows imaging backup. Built-in, easy scheduling, can backup to network targets, no compression
Cheap: drive snapshot. No installation needed, can do anything you can imagine. Knows compression.

However, I would at least consider using virtual machines. Those can use snapshots you can revert to whenever you like. This would of course need another OS license, but the hypervisor (oracle virtual box or hyper-v) is free.

I agree that a virtual machine is probably the best idea depending on the user and the environment (we have many machines here that would do better under VMs but because they are attached to equipment it slows everything down too much).  I use Paragon software (Hard Disk Manager, HDD Suite, etc).  You can set it to regularly schedule making a clone of the hard drive.  It does not clone to a network drive.  This requires a little more setup, I think, than a VM.
