As well as the good ones already suggested, a common scenario in an Internet cafe is to set up a standard image and to have that pushed back out to every PC overnight. During the day the machines can get crap left on them, viruses installed etc and in the morning they will be back to a perfectly clean slate. Is this what you are after? Another option is to go with a server and to use mandatory user profiles. This does much the same as above, but locks all user settings (but the machines themselves can have changes made, like software updates). Now you've got a few ideas you will need to give us some guidance: * What's your budget? * Will you have IT help on-hand (to manage a server, for example)? * Do you want full desktop PCs, or are thin clients ok? * Would you rather let customers have some control over their PC and then wipe away their changes, or would you prefer to totally lock down the environment? Answer some of these high-level questions and we can guide you better.
