Here is what I am trying to do: I have about 30 computers that i want to setup exactly the same. I want the users to be able to use the computers, but if they save anything to the C Drive, it does not get saved when the computer reboots. This way, it will prevent any potential problems with users install software, etc. However, there is a catch. I need to know where users have been surfing on the web. Does anyone know how to do this or know where to get information/software to do such a thing? Any and all information will help. Thanks in advance.

I've seen products that reset the machine to a default configuration no matter what has been changed, I just don't recall the name offhand...

There is some software I've used for a couple of customers called Spytech SecurityWorks from www.spytech-web.com.

You can get a lot of information about what is being done on the computers e-mailed to a specific account with whatever frequency you want.

I'm sure there are others but this is just one that had all the features and made sense to me.

I agree with johnwill. I remember reading about a PCI card that you install in the computer that restores the computer on boot. I just can't remember the name of it or who makes it. You might try contacting a company like CDW or Tiger Direct to see if they can help you.

cdn97,

For your original post, is seems that there are two things being asked for:

1. If they save anything to the C Drive, it does not get saved when the computer reboots

2. However, there is a catch. I need to know where users have been surfing on the web.

Hopefully my previous post answers #2. I'll do some specific research for some solutions for #1.
