Hi Cyps,

Thank you for a quick reply to my post. This is exactly my problem. I have a motherboard withthe nVidia nForce2 chipset (I know, it's a kind of old...)

To solve this issue, I reinstalled my OS and all of the nVidia drivers. Then I customized my new installation to my specifications and when I finished with that, I uninstalled the nVidia IDE driver. I restarted the computer and then I installed Deep Freeze and now it works perfectly.

Thanks again,
Arie

I used Deep Freeze for a while with no problems but then all of a sudden BOOM! My hard drives both gave up on me. Not sure how true this is but apparently the same bit of the hard drive is used over and over which causes quicker deterioration of that section of hard drive resulting in complete failure. Be interested to know what you think because it was a GREAT program while i had it.

There is no truth to the old wives' tale that using the same area of a hard disk will affect it's lifetime. I don't know what killed your drives, but it wasn't that issue.

There are several products like Deep Freeze available. I don't use any of them, so I can't be more specific, but I've seen them in passing.

I presume you are using Deep freeze Standard and you are fine with that for home use. If you've had it for a long time though you might consider upgrading it to the new version which is also compatible with Vista. As for alternatives there is no other program I know of which does the job better than Deep freeze.

What an absolute cracker of a program Deep Freeze is. I can only agree with all the positives said about it and the quote 'The ultimate protector' is no exaggeration in my opinion. It deserves a higher profile than it has and should be better known.
