Clean Slate is designed to protect public access computers from malicious or inexperienced users. While not restricting users' activities, this product will scour drives back to their original state upon reboot or log off. It restores the computer to original configuration, no matter what users have done: including erasing files, installing software, downloading viruses, and altering icons. Also there is no need to reboot to enable/disable security. Clean Slate automatically removes unwanted downloads and software installations, including spyware and adware protects all local hard drives makes file changes temporary does not alter the file system offers the ability to schedule a time of day when security is disabled.
Not much of interactive interface. Not compatible with new OS such as Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Clean Slate used to work quite good. It provided easy updates unlike Deep Freeze with the whole thawing process. However, with the release of new operating systems such as Windows 7 and Windows 8, Clean Slate becomes unstable and crashes the system often.
Googled for an alternative of clean slate and found Drive Vaccine. It has more features, even flexible with updates and definitely cheaper than Deep Freeze. It even works on Windows 7 and Windows 8. Check Drive Vaccine out.

Version: Clean Slate 5.0
Good protection, similar to Deep Freeze but much better in that I can thaw individual folders and also thaw the whole system on the fly
I don't like the interface of the program, it can be a little hard to use for non-technical users.
I like Clean Slate for it's protection which is similar to Deep Freeze but has a lot more options like thawing the system without needing to restart and also keeping individual folders thawed. The interface took a little getting used to so it may be hard to use for non-technical people. Overall, Clean Slate is great, give it a try.
