The first thing is for you to know what DeepFreeze does. It allows you to make whatever changes, additions, or deletions you wish to make during a session, but all of these are undone upon next reboot. If you use a flashdrive or some other form of removable media, and if you're not one to install new programs all the time, this won't be a problem. For most users, however, this can be a big problem. I've addressed this problem in the past by partitioning the hard drive and leaving the inactive partition (C is usually the active partition) thawed, then teaching people to save data files to the thawed partition. Otherwise, you have to thaw and freeze, thaw and freeze every time you want to make the slightest change. That out of the way, here's how you install it...First, you go through the usual procession of EULA, "next" buttons, and the like. Near the end of the installation process, you will be asked to select which partitions you want to freeze. If you only have fixed disk C, there will only be one checkbox. At any rate, select by checking the partition(s) you want frozen. Once you complete the installation process, Windows will not be shut down in the usual manner; it will automatically do a hard shutdown and reboot. Don't be alarmed; this is normal. When Windows restarts, you will be asked to create a password. Go ahead and do so. From this point on, if you wish to make permanent changes to a frozen partition, you will have to reboot and thaw it first. Open the DeepFreeze controller by using the key combination "Ctrl + Shift + Alt + F6," and enter your password to authenticate. You will have the option of thawing the partition for the next session only, or for all subsequent sessions until you manually freeze again. Make your selection and reboot. If you ever wish to update DeepFreeze, or uninstall it completely, or do anything that requires a reboot of its own, you should always opt to thaw for all sessions until you re-freeze the partition yourself. Hope this helps!
