    I downloaded Returnil and installed it today based on what I read here and in other threads on this forum and I must say I am very happy with the program. It was a snap to install and the documentation was clear as a bell. I have used the program a number of times today while I tested a number of downloaded programs and the PC was returned flawlessly back to its original state once I was finished. Talk about fast, I had been using GoBacks Safe Try mode for this sort of thing and have know GoBack to take 15 plus min to get ST mode up and running. I occasionally did not bother with ST mode when testing because I could not stand the idea of possibly having to wait forever while GB got ST mode up and running. Real nice program, highly recommended.

    Many thanks to the publishers.

    PS edit: I downloaded the free version but I suspect that I will upgrade sooner rather than later. Once I have used it a bit more I will let you know if there is anything else I would like the program to be able to do. Thanks again for this excellent tool (and no, I am not associated with the publishers in any way).

    Mr Coldmoon,my experience sofar with Returnil is that with memory cache use the system is snappier.And safer also i guess because i can figure that there is no write access to disk (no container) so anything happen in memory and with a reboot everything is gone,its just like a Ramdisk,really no traces left behind.
    My security setup is with SBIE in RamDisk and an underlying Rturnil session with memory cache,its the ultimate secure delete i can think off.

    please your opinion ?

    "Nice program...", an understatment if I ever heard one!!

    I am using the premium version and it is invincible to all malware in my experience (and I have been reckless and bold in my wanderings on the web, going into the Belly of the Beast , and believe me it is chock full of OS killers [XP in my case] except for the 'nice program' Returnil that gives me the "cloak of invisibility" --so to say).

    For those of us that use XP it is an absolute necessity trumping updates and service packs (even though I do recommend being up to date Windows wise).

    I have used the beta version with SP2 only and have yet to lose the battle to any form of malware.
