Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Those tasks are taken care of by windows 7 from out of the box installation. I would sugguest doing daily or weekly backups either on the files or the whole computer. external drives are cheap enough now. Have the computers turn on couple hours before your run a automate a full system backup before they come in.
