It can happen to any of us. Someone uses our computer system and goes to a rogue website and the next thing we know our system turns to toast. Or you have small children in the family who use the family system and accidentally mess everything up. No matter what the situation, Microsoft Windows Steady State can return your system and hard disk to its original condition by merely rebooting the system. Microsoft describes their software as:

Not an IT professional? That’s OK—it can be easy to manage shared computers that are hardened by Windows SteadyState for multiple users.

Users sometimes go places and do things they shouldn’t on shared machines. Now you can help protect sensitive locations and restrict user access to features such as Control Panel.

You can’t always prevent problems during a user session, but now you can undo the whole session. Learn how Windows SteadyState can return your computer and hard disk to its exact condition before the user touched it, simply by rebooting.

Important. Read The FAQ section before using this software. When I was teaching at our local College, the IT department used a product called Deep Freeeze. If you save something on the system it will be gone at the next reboot. So be aware of the limitations that may apply.

Steady State can be found here.

Validation of a valid copy of Windows XP must be completed before downloading the free software.
