    EDIT

    Hi im new here

    I need help im searching for a program like deepfreeze that can be disabled without rebooting the windows. is there such a program

    Timefreeze is like that but the problem is when the windows starts up it has a Timefreeze menu I need it in stealth mode. Any program out there besides Timefreeze?

    Thanks guys

    There's Returnil as well, which uses this forum for product support. Shadow Defender is another option, but with uncertain development.

    I don't believe so. In fact I don't think there are any that will do what you want. All require a reboot as far as I know.

    Unless you use something like Sandboxie (which I know isn't the same as full virtualization), I don't know of any either that don't require a reboot.

    Have a look at Clean Slate by Fortres Grand: http://www.fortresgrand.com/products/cls/cls.htm

    Quote from the web page: "Quickly disable or enable security, no need to reboot".

    As far as I know the program "Clean Slate" offers you such a possibility. One of its features is:

    For details please take a look at their website:

    Actually it is quite confusing:

    I've just tried Clean Slate myself and I agree it is confusing. Although the security can be enabled and disabled without a reboot, any changes that have occurred while the security is enabled aren't actually discarded until the next log off or reboot. Also, it is useless for testing software that requires a reboot because any changes that occur while the security is enabled are automatically discarded on the next reboot, with no option to temporarily keep the changes.

    Unless I'm missing something, I can't see what significant advantage Clean Slate offers over programs like Shadow Defender and Returnil. As far as I can see, the reason Clean Slate doesn't require a reboot to disable the security is because it is tracking changes to the Windows file system and registry, which unlike the disk sector tracking technique used by Shadow Defender and Returnil, doesn't require locking the disk.

    Agreed. In some quick tests, I have noticed that it seems that applications are permitted to make changes that persist through sessions while protection is on. It's confusing as to what degree protection is provided. For example, for performance reasons, one may want to prevent the OS from aging through normal operation and use. Does Clean Slate provide this type of protection?
