Is there a Steady State for Windows 7 for more users?

by bcadej / August 16, 2012 6:05 PM PDT

I would like to set up a Steady State for Windows 7 ( for more than one user.

I would like to set up two users: students and teachers and I would like that the account is reset after user logs out.

Here are instructions how I can achieve this for only one user.

Thank for assistance.

I know there is no native Steady State for Windows 7.
My question was, can I prepare accounts for more users on one computer?
