Restore Windows 7 in 3 Minutes

If you liked Microsoft’s SteadyState and wish they hadn’t gotten rid of it, Steadier State may answer that wish
If you’ve never heard of SteadyState but think it’d be cool to have the power of a virtual machine’s snapshots implemented on a physical machine running Windows 7 or R2, you may like Steadier State

The Problem
You’re in charge of a bunch of PCs used by random people who are clueless/don’t care
* Classroom labs
* Libraries
* Kiosk machines
* Multiple-user workstations
It’s your job to quickly and easily un-do everything they’ve done to get ready for the next class/patron/user etc… undo in minutes

The Answer
Well, there are plenty of ’em, but they tend to be either slow or expensive
Microsoft used to give away a nice answer called “SteadyState,” but they don’t any more, and never supported Windows 7
Fortunately, there’s a “SteadyState” hidden inside Windows 7 (kind of), and Steadier State makes it possible for Free !!!
