  1. Hello,

    Is there any other free apps around that can prevent users from installing all kinds of software, pretty much like Deep Freeze. See I'm running a small internet cafe business, and I hate it when people install all kinds of third-party apps (e.g Yontoo). Kids are regulars here in my cafe and some have no idea what they're doing with the system.

    I don't want to use Deep Freeze. I want something simple to use and with much flexibility.

    What version of Windows? Win/7 takes care of this by forcing use of the admin/password & the UAC feature.

    Windows 8, though the UAC was left disabled by me. The restrictions that I want to make is for the customer's user accounts. I don't want to use the family safety features of Windows 8 because there are so many pop-ups that show on the desktop whenever a customer starts any app, it's so annoying.
