When you’re managing a public computer, you need a special kind of tool. You need a way to reset that computer back to a clean state every time it boots so no one can make any harmful changes.

MSE Red-Flags this program....

Comodo Internet Security marks it as safe. It appears that the package is not digitally signed and therefore, MSE cannot verify the publisher.

I prefer ToolWiz TimeFreeze. It's a little more basic than RRRx in that in only allows the main system drive to be frozen and restored, but it allows for password protection so it cannot be tampered with. Though DeepFreeze was always my favorite, TimeFreeze is pretty great for being freeware.

Also, the splash screen appearing every time the computer starts could be annoying to some extent and would also result in some increase in Boot Time.

I used to use a 'recovery card' which was a small PCI add-in card which would save any changes to the Windows XP partition at the end of the hard drive space. After rebooting, the changes were wiped. No additional software/drivers were necessary. However, I believe it only worked for FAT32 file systems, not NTFS. It worked great at the time, however. I could literally re-format the hard drive, reboot, and it was like it never happened.
If you search eBay for 'PCI recovery card', you can still find them available for sale.

I use Dropbox as it is very much similer but has very much security

How do you use Dropbox to 'Reset a Computer Back to a Clean State' ?

The post to which I replied is my mistake and i am sorry for that. Actually I wanted to tell about software Deep Freeze. In that there is good level of security where in no normal can alter Deep freeze setting.

Recently started using ToolWiz TimeFreeze myself, I do a lot of installing/uninstalling. This works much better than systems restore and much, much faster than making an image and restoring.
@Jitendra What slash screen,?I don't get one.

It was about Reboot Restore Rx tool splash screen that appears every time the computer starts, not for the ToolWiz TimeFreeze.
