Default pci card that holds data even when restarted

Some lan parties or some places that don't want their computers wiped out by noobs have their pci card or whatever it is so that the data will remain even after restart or shutdown. I'm wondering what this is...

I don't understand what you mean? Are you talking about using an I-ram to hold temporary files?

it is called "Deep Freeze"

It allows maximum usage out of a computer but no matter what the user did, the computer is returned back to the original "admin mapped" state when restarted. My HS used this type of protection.

cool so in a way when the user is actually using the computer it is a virtual environment and no permanent effects are truly made to the original

It's not really a virtual environment. Basically deepfreeze takes an image of the HDD, and everytime it reboots reloads that image.

It's sweet software if a PC is going to see public use.
