I work over a 2 years in internet cafe. I was system administrator! The best way is to create clone's backup. I assume that machine is the same. Do fresh installation on one computer, when you finished create ghost of that computer and use it for further. And another thing, on your server go in manage device and setup permission and protocol for each machine. And be ware that your machine will always have some virus. It's impossible to protect 100%.
Regards and good luck

How to connect a laptop having vista home basic with a xp desktop

Be advised that,
it makes not different to connect one PC/Laptop to another one via LAN because when you connect your system in lan networking you system will be automatically detected if LAN has been set up through a server.
And if not you need to do manually by assigning ID address on bot PC/Laptop.
For that,
first assign an IP address in either Laptop or desktop (IP address must be same category)
ex. (first one)
and second one should be you can up (instead of 231) any number excep 0 but make sure not confliction between other system. means not duplication IP address on same LAN.
once you ae done with IP assigning
Go to
Star>Run>command and hit enter
once you see command prompt then
type there:
ipconfig and hit enter (it shows your ip address) if you wanna have more info then type ipconfig/all
once you are done with this then
you need to ping to your next PC.
for that
type in

and hit etner
if you see like on image
then you are good to go.


Thank you
