Is this smart or is this foolish? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
i dunno man - i'd get annoyed when i forget to turn it off, install then wonder what happened. but if you have the discipline, i don't see why t's a foolish idea.

"they" say when you first do a build and customize it just like you want, take a solid back-up of it and stash it away. So that next time when you restore, all the configs are done. Well your doing the same thing, just a lil smarter way :-)

sounds very good except the minor hassle a very coooold room

jk, but it sounds like pretty smart thing to do with just a few minor annoyances but it sounds pretty solid.

Personally, I'd get an antivirus along with deepfreeze since you can still get malware on your other drive.

Fresh install doesn't run that much faster.... It might respond slower since SuperFetch can't learn your habits.

Not on modern machines with low-resource real-time AV. If you are using a non-real-time scanner, it has virtually no impact on performance unless scanning.

Then why does it feel snappier then before?

Do you have an objective benchmark?

What do you think would make the OS less "snappy"? Installed apps? Registry entries?

If you can live with it then I'd say its a good idea, personally i wouldn't like it but it does sound like a good idea to keep a pretty fast running OS.

Dude..if there were an application white list or segregation list I would be all over this for our field computers at work. We have a few applications that we update on a monthly basis so that rules this out. Manually updating 600+ workstations once a month is not an option.

With a free app you get with DeepFreeze called Data Igloo you can redirect certain things. So if you set up your Program files to be redirected to a different partition and exclude certain parts of the register you should be golden.

Try it on one machine and see if it works.

So what happens when you install something? Where do the installed files go?

Any changes to protected areas get reset after the computer is rebooted. No matter what you do, your changes are reverted upon reboot.
