Discards unwanted changes

Clean Slate, developed and manufactured in the United States, is designed to protect public access computers from malicious or inexperienced users. While not restricting users’ activities, Clean Slate will scour drives back to their original state upon reboot or log off. Clean Slate takes only minutes to install and needs no attention, ever, for most installations. Clean Slate restores the computer to its original configuration discarding unwanted user changes: including erased files, installed software, downloaded spyware and adware, downloaded viruses and Trojan horses, and altered icons.

Accommodates Windows Updates while Secure

Attention SignTip: Clean Slate not only clears unwanted changes, it also blocks unfamiliar executables from running.

Without requiring any effort from the administrator, Clean Slate automatically accommodates Windows Updates. No need for complicated scripting, scheduling of downtime, and leaving computers on overnight. It just works! These Windows Critical Updates are vital to protect not only the computer being updated, but also other computers connected with this computer throughout the local network and beyond. Clean Slate makes it easy to be a responsible Internet citizen by keeping all of your computers updated with the latest security patches. Again it requires nothing of you but to install Clean Slate.

Allows software deployment tools
like Microsoft® SCCM, Altiris® and LANDesk®

Clean Slate allows for automated remote software deployment and maintenance while maintaining a secure computing experience. Use any third party deployment tool while Clean Slate security is active. Your computers are never left vulnerable.

Products with broadly similar characteristics to Clean Slate lack the flexibility and the technology to accommodate this non-trivial need. They require that the security be taken down every time any routine maintenance task needs to be performed, creating unacceptable vulnerabilities, inviting unascertainable threats, and interrupting lab availability. Clean Slate, with a simple configuration, works smoothly with third party deployment tools.

With this important benefit, Clean Slate allows computer maintenance tasks to be performed without the need to remove students from computers or disable security on computers.

Accommodates finicky and security averse programs

The effortless configuration Clean Slate offers is ideal. Clean Slate can automatically configure many applications that require special attention, easing administration. A number of applications, typically legacy antivirus types, do not treat the file system in a way that is compatible with the default configuration of Clean Slate. Clean Slate will look for these known applications and make special accommodation so the applications can function as designed while Clean Slate security is active. Nothing is required of you but to install Clean Slate.

Protection from rogue administrators

Clean Slate protects from rogue administrators. All of the security features can be applied to local system administrators and domain administrators, too. Normally, administrators have unrestricted access to a computer. Clean Slate changes this, and allows enforceable restrictions on administrators’ activities.

Blocks execution of any program

Clean Slate security goes beyond just clearing unwanted changes. You can also block programs from running. Clean Slate reads and lists all the programs in your start menu. While in the Clean Slate configuration screen, simply select the programs you want blocked. Once configured, the programs can not be accessed. Not only will Clean Slate block the execution of any presently installed programs but also unknown programs from the Internet and removable media (USB drives, CD ROM, network shares, floppy disks, etc.).

Allows permanent saves when wanted

Attention SignDid you know that Windows Critical and Antivirus Updates run normally with Clean Slate security active?

Rated best nonrestrictive desktop security software, Clean Slate is easy yet powerful. Administrators, by password, can specify individual drives or directories not to be cleared by Clean Slate, allowing persistent changes in some areas on the disk. Additionally, administrators can view all changes made and specify which changes should be undone on reboot or log off and which should be committed as permanent changes.

Allows antivirus signature updates

Compatible with all major antivirus software, Clean Slate is the ideal solution. Clean Slate, while the security is active, allows antivirus updates to install properly. Clean Slate will automatically configure your antivirus software. Once configured, all antivirus updates will install, effectively protecting your computers, without fear of the update being removed at log off or reboot.

Provides the perfect learning environment

Customizing any area of the computer to precisely accommodate your security need is quick and easy using wild cards and environment variables. In a computer programming environment, Clean Slate can allow students to save and test changes.

Protects your computers

Clean Slate actually prevents the original files from ever being modified. Instead, Clean Slate caches all unwanted changes in a special folder that is hidden and protected from the users. When the computer is rebooted or a user logs off, Clean Slate merely discards the cached changes.

Ideal security

Packed with features, Clean Slate provides impressive flexibility. The powerful security of Clean Slate discards all unwanted changes; plus, it is flexible allowing permanent saves where desired. Clean Slate has the ability to allow permanent saves by Registry key, file name, or folder. Any program can easily be configured to run without Clean Slate clearing changes. This is ideal to retain antivirus updates.
