    How can I create an unchangeable local user profile


    Hi, I have a computer running Windows 10 Pro X64. This is a stand alone computer i.e. it is not in a Domain. I'd like to create an unchangeable local user profile for guest users so that every kind of changes they make will be lost at logoff included created folders and files inside the profile. I'd like to know if it is possible to create this kind of profile without using third-party software but just o.s. characteristics. Usually this kind of profile is called mandatory. All the infos I found on the Net refer to a Domain environment (e.g. all the stuff regarding renaiming ntuser.dat in ntuser.man...) but I'm looking for infos about how to create a local unchangeble user profile. This must be a real unchangeable profile not just avoiding changing of bars position, wallpaper and simple stuff like these. Thanks for the attention.

    It could be done, like using System Image Recovery, but it not easy to setup. Third party tools are better.

    Hi guys and thank for your suggestions. The ideas could be good but too complicated for the goal I wish to accomplish: I don't need to restore an entire system but just discard changes made in the user profile used by my guests. I found that forcing a profile as a temporar profile works good for my needs and if I could eliminate the warning message it would be perfect! Here the warning I would to turn off

    As well as the deep freeze method, is to create a default mandatory user profile.
