Deep Freeze changes the settings back to what *you* specified when the
computer was "frozen" during the Deep Freeze set up. You can unfreeze the
computer, change what you need or want to, then refreeze the
computer...Deep Freeze will return the computer to those settings that you
as administrator changed.  A companion product of theirs (Cooler, I believe
its called) will allow you to hide or disable any command or menu
function.  I used Deep Freeze for years, and while it was a tad cumbersome
to unfreeze/refreeze, it worked very well...almost bullet-proof.

Hope this helps.
