What is a program that sort of freezes the state of the computer and no matter what you do to it, it will be restored to that state upon restarting. I remember the computers had this program is school so that anything kids did or downloaded would be erased. I would like to set up a community computer in my house with this so I can let anyone use it and not worry about it.

I know such programs exist but why not just create a guest account? they will not be able to make any system changes.

I am sure any programs that do what you want will cost money, and they only work when you restart.

There will already be multiple accounts, guest being one of them. So I need a program to span all of them and not allow anyone to make changes.

well the only one I know of off hand is deep freeze, that will run you $180 bucks. But i would look into adjusting the security settings of the users. These programs make start up/shut down slow because it has to restore changes.

Yea, that seems to be it. Seems like it's sold by subscription and that sucks. Know of any other similar programs?

You can make a virtual PC and freeze the virtual PC in whatever state it is in and have it automatically go back to that state at startup, or save the changes to a differencing virtual drive that way you could just delete that one file and all changes would be undone
