Pros: The advantages are many.

The most basic are; The restoration of the hard disk to the state in which it was before the use of the users, the selection of the discs that you want to freeze and those that do not.

As also more complicated things from the server interface; as the execution of batch files customizable from the server and applicable to each machine remotely. It also has a calendar to decide that way, when you want to run a batch file, update windows or "thawed locked" (useful for updating software without worrying about someone else using the computer and deconfiguring it). Without forgetting the availability of "wake on lan" without having to write the MAC of each machine manually, useful when you have many computers.

I use batch files personally to keep programs and applications updated at all times.

Cons: The only important disadvantage I find is having to place a user and a password to run programs on computers remotely, which is not necessary with other software (not for the same purposes as deep freeze).

Overall: It helps me not have to worry about the things they download or the bad configurations that users run on computers.

Pros: Protects your systems against threats, data corruption, system failures and prolongs its life.

Very easy to implement and use. Set it and forget it.

Cons: None. Its fairly easy to use, easy to implement.

Overall: I used to run cybercafe and one most critical problem we all cyber-cafe owners faced that corruption of Operating System due to viruses, threats, improper use of system. Then I came across this software Deep Freeze and suddenly it solved all of my problems. All I had to do just freeze drive where operating system in installed and forget it. Whatever viruses came and tampered the system or corruption due to customer's bad use of the system, just disappears after you restart the system. It was like magic and everyone soon followed my trend to use this software. I no longer run cybercafe (since they ran out of business), but I still use this software in our small business office to protect my investments and it still works it magic.

My PC free of viruses and junk files, always like new.

Pros: Deep freeze allows me to freeze the hard drive so that you work normally with it (I create and delete files, install and remove programs, modify the appearance of the desktop) but when I restart the PC again, no change will have any effect. This is a great advantage because it allows me to have the PC without viruses, malicious programs, junk files, and I find it more useful on the PC used by the whole family in the reading room of the house.

Cons: We must be very careful if I unfreeze the PC to install something or make some change to the operating system, and then we forget to refreeze, this would be a danger to my younger siblings who are always playing and browsing the PC at home.

Pros: I employ Deep Freeze on computers that are used by middle school and high school students. They download all sorts of bloatware, so it's great to be able to use Deep Freeze to make sure the computers stay in good shape week to week. I have yet to get any viruses while using Deep Freeze. They also "hide" the software, so a typical user has no clue that it's being used. This helps with people "thawing" Deep Freeze.

Cons: I wish Deep Freeze would allow for regular Windows updates without unthawing. Really, this is a minor complaint. To update the computer, you "unthaw" by restarting, and then you can update any software. So, it just takes a few computer restarts and you're done.

Problably the best software invented for admin public computer ! Really practical for public user !!

Pros: The best thing it's when you install it , this software freeze the computer and when you restart it's like you never use it, if user got a virus or a malware you restart it and it gone !!!before we use Deep freeze, each day i havent to reinstall 2 or 3 computer now it's happen only each month due to other issue.

Cons: Honestly, the only thing you need to check it's the setting you give to the software, be sure to allow a good time for windows update if you dont do that , windows dont have the time to make the update and often you got bluescreen, pay attention to that .

Overall: Now i can use my time to arrange real problem, not virus or othing promblem on public computer !

Pros: Ideal to maintain a controlled environment in the office free of viruses and Trojans

It is a light software and easy installation, it allows me to 'freeze' the state of the computer, so that, every time the machine is restarted, it will return to the state of its start.

Through the implementation of this program you can reduce the number of incidents due to virus attacks.

Cons: Through the use I have with this application I do not see anything negative, although care must be taken to unfreeze the PC to make changes and we can not forget freeze again.

Pros: DeeFreeze prevented unwanted installation of software onto our lab PCs. If any changes were made, all we need to do is reboot the machine in order to go back to the original state. They also made it very easy to add software if needed. The cloud solutions they offered worked very well.

Cons: The on prem Control Center was a little outdated and clunky to use. Sometimes machines would not respond or pull software down.

Overall: Deep Freeze allowed us to secure our lab PCs from unwanted changes. It also allowed us to utilize the cloud features for some remote management.

Pros: This software keeps us safe and gives us a stable and clean environment for our computers. As a result it gives us a lot of flexibility of where and how we present computers to the public.

Cons: We have had software conflicts over the years deepfreeze and other software packages. They have always worked through them, but it has taken a lot of work.

Overall: It freezes our computer image to a pristine state. One reboot it sets things back to the way they are supposed to be. Each morning we apply updates, reboot and have our public computing ready to go.

Pros: With Deep Freeze I can freeze the hard drive so that you normally work with it (create and delete files, install and uninstall programs, modify the appearance of the desktop, etc.) but when you boot again, no change has taken effect, that is: hard drive will have exactly the same content as at the beginning.

This feature is very good when the PC is shared by many people in the laboratory or workplace.

Cons: The only drawback is the activation and deactivation mechanisms to make some change, if you unfreeze the PC and then you forget, you will be in trouble.

Pros: Do not have to think or worry about installing antivirus since being frozen the viruses will no longer be, to think that your PC will be more protected as the first day is a great advantage

Cons: if you start working or download files or install programs, or if you want to save pages in my favorites, etc, and did not thaw it before, unfortunately everything you save or install or modify on the disk that you have frozen, will go to the trash.

Overall: the software gives you to choose the partitions you want to freeze, if you want all or not, after having installed it gives you a password

Pros: The ease of use and the ability to interact with machines via the cloud directly with your phone via the app. I also love that you can keep core apps up to date like chrome but erase other undesired applications upon reboot.

Cons: I am not able to list any notable cons at this time. Maybe they can continue to add to the supported application list that can be patched but not erased upon reboot, can't hurt!

Overall: It keeps our environment more secure but deleting unwanted software and removing confidential documents from shared machines from uninformed users.

Pros: I really liked the ability to configure it to rewind computers to a known state for a group of student users. Being about to set thaw and freeze timeframes was key to being about to integrate with other update products.

Cons: Although the product performed well in our environment it did produce some challenges with un-expected times machines would need to be thawed. So the cons would really be it didn't fit well in the environment

Overall: The ability to restore student computers in and environment that is always well supervised.

Pros: It's an incredible tool I use to safeguard the computers my company provides for our residents to use. Dozens of residents sharing the same computers means an incredible amount of junk and malware. Deep Freeze lets me clean up the computers by simply rebooting. Saves me a great deal of time and energy.

Cons: The only thing that would improve this software is if it were free. In my opinion, it's incredible and I can't think of a significant downside.

Pros: Pretty much eliminated any software related support calls that I had, simply restart and "voila" the problem was either fixed or I knew that I had a hardware problem. My end users even eventually liked it because they could restart and solve a lot of problems on their own.

Cons: Normal things like Windows Updates and Antivirus/Antimalware updates are a bit tricky to schedule. Thawspaces make local storage handy, but you can't reach them in safemode if a hard drive fails.

Pros: It is a Nucleo Controller that protects the integrity of the Hard Disk, avoiding installation of Antivirus by redirecting the information that is going to be written to the protected disk or partition leaving the original information intact

Cons: During the time that it is thawed, only tasks for which it was defrosted will be carried out, since during this period it will be vulnerable to the action of viruses, etc. You also have to try to have it defrosted the minimum time essential.

Pros: As described above, Deepfreeze does exactly what it is supposed to do. It locks down each computer from change, which can be good for keeping storage low on the computers.

Cons: Huge problem with these computers was making alterations to laptops. Since all of the laptops that we currently had in our environment did not have wake on lan while asleep, we had to manually open every laptop and run through the deepfreeze alterations to make changes to the computer. Also testing was really difficult.
