Ok here's the deal, I rent PC's on cafes and I'm obviously not the administrator. They have deep freeze in their OS and I don't want it because it erases everything I save on the Registry ( Windows "Run" > regedit ) after restarting. By the way, It is not any type of hack or any harmful act. Know, in the meantime, I would want to know if I can make my own User account or open a new Operating System or whatsoever WITH basically nothing in it (No programs, no antivirus, no deepfreeze). Just similar too a reformatted PC or whatever. Is it possible?

Some things I might not know just in case:

Registry edits take effect only after restarting?
Can logging off be an alternative for restarting just so the Registry edits would take effect?

DeepFreeze is installed to keep users from screwing up the OS. Whatever happens during use gets rolled back after a reboot. You would have to request that DeepFreeze be disabled for your use (not likely to happen).

You shouldn't be applying registry edits to a computer you don't own anyway.

If you want to run your own customized OS, consider using a live Linux distro (on a CD or flash drive) or actually install Linux on the flash drive and boot from it.

I was just about to suggest that.
