Windows 7: Campus Lab PCs, need to perform auto image restore every night at 2am

Campus Lab PCs, need to perform auto image restore every night at 2am

At the start of each term, I re-image computers which creates a 'fresh' install. Over the terms time, students download files, and do things on computers which tends to slow them down. At the end of the term, i perform a fresh re-image. I don't want to lock students out from saving files on their respective desktop (active directory logins), but i want to reduce the time I spend refreshing PCs.

I'm familiar with software which is called Deep Freeze, but I don't want to spend money on licenses. Can the built in windows system restore be automated to do this every night/morning at 2am?

My thoughts - Create a fresh system image and have it restored to that image every night. This way students won't clog up the computers.
