Windows SteadyState Released For XP

Microsoft has released something called Windows SteadyState, software designed for places with public computers. SteadyState keeps computers in shared public locations, like libraries and internet cafés, safe from the actions of the many users who might be accessing it on a daily basis. SteadyState makes managing the system easier, prevent users from installing software, infecting it with viruses, changing system settings, and changing the desktop appearance.

SteadyState replaces the Shared Computer Toolkit, and is free, but it only works on Genuine Windows XP Home/Pro/Tablet. It comes with an improved UI over the Toolkit, plus easier controls, simplified system-wide user restriction levels, the ability to copy user accounts from computers, more restrictions, Windows Disk Protection (which rolls back changes the second the user logs out), a User Account Manager, and a central control for security and privacy settings.
