The Ultimate Protector ~> DEEP FREEZE

We often encounter problems in our desktops, notebooks either due to virus attacks or due to some recent software changes. These changes are reflected as system startup (booting) problems, software malfunctioning, reduced processing speeds (slower systems) & many others. After trying all the measures, the last option left with us is to format the computer, which indeed is a no one’s choice.


I was too looking for an efficient & powerful solution & finally found an ultimate tool. Here is an i ntelligent way for a bsolute protection from unauthorized executables like virus, logic bombs etc & for other problems we often face.


Its Deep Freeze from Faronics Technologies and downtime by making computer configurations indestructible. Once Deep Freeze is installed on a workstation, any changes made to the computer—regardless of whether they are accidental or malicious—are never permanent. Deep Freeze provides immediate immunity from many of the problems that plague computers today—accidental system misconfiguration, malicious software activity, and incidental system degradation.

Not for everyone, but perfect for some Overall, Deep Freeze ensures computers are absolutely bulletproof, even when users have full access to system software and settings. Users get to enjoy a pristine and unrestricted computing experience, while IT personnel are freed from tedious helpdesk requests.They can install programs, delete files, and change Windows settings. When the system is rebooted, though, all of the changes are undone and the system is restored to the state at which Deep Freeze was installed.


Important:
  • Users can install programs, delete files, and change Windows settings. When the system is rebooted, though, all of the changes are undone and the system is restored to the state at which Deep Freeze was installed.

  • When Deep Freeze is installed it "freezes" all the used space on a particular hard drive partition. No permanent changes can then be made to that partition unless Deep Freeze is disabled or uninstalled or Deep Freeze Professional's ThawSpace feature is used. That is, if a user saves a file to a "frozen" C: drive, it will be lost once the machine is rebooted.

  • If you saved a document to the local hard drive, you may not want the document erased after the next reboot. This is where the ThawSpace mechanism comes in. The ThawSpace feature allows you to designate anywhere from 16 MB to 2 GB of space as exempt from Deep Freeze. Anything saved or modified within this space will never be touched by Deep Freeze.

  • If you want to store information locally it is best to create a separate hard drive partition that you leave unfrozen. Information stored on this partition would not be affected were Deep Freeze to be uninstalled.

Caution:

I would strongly recommend you about using Deep Freeze. If you are unknown about installing, configuring & using first try to have a round on Deep Freeze's complete information & abilities before you proceed, as the potential problems could be serious.
