    Consider a Reboot-to-restore program.

    I've used Deep Freeze (DF) for more than 10 years. On reboot, anything written to C:\ during the previous session is wiped (including to the Registry: MRU, etc).

    With DF you need at least one unfrozen partition for your data.

    Other Reboot-to-restore programs may not be so restrictive, but all will auto-clean out your junk on each reboot.

    I wish there was a command, which would allow to remove all directories within a folder, but I guess a command like that is impossible to create, since MS is unable to do it since DOS. :D

    You can do that from the Command Prompt by entering
    Code:
    rd/s <folder name>

    That removes the whole folder, not just its content.

    It does remove the whole folder. If it's not doing that, some files that it's trying to delete must be in use.

    No, you don't actually need a space before a forward slash. For example, sfc/scannow and chkdsk/f will also work, even though there is no space.

    AFAIK they release slim version few days after full package is released. At least that was usual release procedure a while back.

    Yes, that's right, a few days or weeks. Last slim build (530) was released on 31 May.

    One other reason to use this build is to avoid any initial problems. Yesterday's 5.31.6104 release borked some users Firefox and Thunderbird, but I think this has subsequently been corrected by a build 6105.

    That must be why the slim build is currently unavailable.

    I use Powershadow, (still available free) for win xp and ShadowDefender (not free) for win 7.
    Both allow you to leave one or more partitions un-shadowed.
