I just upgrade my OS to Windows 7 64 bit and it's running very smoothly right now with a few programs and games installed, I'm looking forward in installing Deep freeze or Steady state to keep the status of my PC and keep it that way, does the two above work already or it's still being worked on by their developers?

I've been using deep freeze for quite sometimes now. I also want to preserve my computer from a known and optimum state. This is also good virus defense, just restart and you'll be back healthy. :)

I love Deep Freeze. You can manage your workstations from a remote console, so thawing a large number at one time is relatively easy. We have it installed on 20+ labs and the workload is 1% what it used to be.

Edit: additional information.
