Well, what I mean with "Is it safe?", is that, if I put the main hard drive(Drive C) in the deep freeze state, and the other hard drives blocked (it means, the files can only be saved on the desktop), in case a virus attacked my PC, will the other drives be safe? I will be placing all the update software in unfrozen drive so that whenever there's an need to update, I'll just run the program and do not worry about the deep freeze state.

Flash drives can still be plugged in though.

Never used this software, but from what I read it essentially keeps any system changes logged to separate partition for system use while the system is running. Once you restart, this partition is cleared and you start from zero again.

Sounds safe, especially if you have relatives/kids/noobs using your computer. Just note if you want to make changes to your OS (updates/app installs/etc) you'll need to turn the freeze off then back on once you're done.

As far as your other drives, they are only as safe as the contents on them :) If they aren't system bootable disks they should be fine.

Usually, the one using the computer cannot play because the antivirus is blocking his game. That's why I'm using deep freeze. Also, to avoid unintentional changes to occur in the computer.
