In running a computer rental, do computers need to be formatted every week or once a month?If not necessarily,what sort fo combinations of AVs and antispywares should there be installed in each computer in order to maintain its optimum performance?Thank you.

You are planning on renting computers out to the public?
Look into this:

Thanks for the info link raw.

I saw this awhile ago on some library computers in another state and forgot the name of the program.
It solved a lot of problems they had with computers used by the general public.
The only easy day was yesterday.

From reading around it seems that the 'Enterprise' edition will allow
a 'stealth' mode. No mention of this in the Standard edition.
I couldn't find anything dealing with the splash screen.

Is it still necessary to install AV on computer or will deepfreeze be enough to block those that make pc run slow?I have only enabled windows firewall and did not install anti virus and disabled windows updates thinking these could all cause computer to become sluggish.Thank you.

DeepFreeze puts the computer back exactly the way it was set up
after every reboot.

11. How does Deep Freeze handle virus attacks?

Any virus that infects a Frozen computer is treated the same as any other change - yesterday`s, today`s, and tomorrow`s viruses will be eliminated upon reboot. Deep Freeze will completely remove any changes viruses make to a protected workstation upon reboot.
