Stay away from deep freeze! There is an angry ex-employee of faronics out there who releases this little gadget called deep unfreezer. I leaned this the hard way after my predecessor had paid thousands of dollars for a license (sufficed to say that we do not renew our support). This basically is an .exe that allows someone to thaw a computer without a password. Have you checked into something like edubuntu on the desktop or a K12LTSP server (both of which are far simpler to manage... and free)?

I am looking for information concerning using Deep Freeze with WIN XP 
(service pack 2) as well as using Anti Virus software, such as McAfee 
A.S.A.P. Is there anyone using this type of configuration or something 
close to it? If so, I would like to hear any pro's or con's that you 
have experienced.
