Ok heres is the deal. Customer called she ownes a pre-school she wants me to reload win98 and pre school programs on here 4 units she has. she has all the needed software.My question is this I need a program that will let me freeze her computers desktops and programs so the kids cant install or uni-install or delete system files.What i want is a program that will not let anything change once i have installed win98 and programs to the units.And say if someone did delete something that when the unit is re-booted that it will go back to the way it was before.
Thanks

I used a program at my highschool called Fortress I think. Basicaly it will lock down everything. No explorer, no deleteing, no moving, no nothing if I remember correctly. I can't tell you who makes it. I used it on som windows 3.1 systems. I'm sure there is a 95/98 version out there. There are ways around it but you should be ok with pre-schoolers. I'd try looking for something like that.

I'm not quite sure what you mean, but MSI has a program called lock box. You can't do anything until you enter a password to unlock the computer. Something like that? Explain a little more.

My school used hardware! Called centurian gaurd.. it had a software counter part and it was locked by an actual key on the back that was wired in to the hardware! Very interesting. I spent most of my high school years trying to disable the son of a b___h!

You could also install Roxio Goback on all of them, I use it and it works pretty well,if something goes wrong just restore from it, will also work if windows doesn't boot up.
