    Talking Deep Freeze Alternative

    Hello all,

    Can anyone suggest a free (and reliable) alternative to Deep Freeze?

    I would like to find one that meets the following requirements:

    Compatible with both Windows 98 SE and XP SP1.

    Uses low system resources (lowest possible). No fancy graphics, GUIs, etc. Simple, yet does the job.

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure if there even is one; as far as I've hear there isn't. You'll probably end up having to buy Deep Freeze. It's not all that expensive, and it meets the rest of your requirements..

    "a Windows recovery system"

    also: a Windows Recovery Systems is included on the XP Cd. Another option is Clean Slate from Fortres but I didn't search google to see if it cost anything.

    cheers


    edit: I wasn't able to find any free alternatives and would there be one that could do all that?
