    MS re-release SCT as Windows SteadyState

    If you have heard of the Shared Computer Toolkit Microsoft have upgraded it and re-release it as Windows SteadyState.
    This is a great tool that protects shared computers. We used it to protect our open access library PCs which would always get messed about with.
    The problem with the old system was that you had to create a separate partition on the hard disk but that step is now unnecessary Microsoft also claim it is easier to use
    Features
    Getting Started
    Windows Disk Protection
    User Restrictions and Settings
    User Account Manager
    Computer Restrictions
    This is obviously not a substitute for good practice/group policy settings but it helps if you are not that technical with desktop management

    It's also a pretty good band-aid for serverless primary schools.
