    Of course Rollback Rx. It's fast, reliable, strong and solid.

    Different types of software first of all. Second,when I used Rollback Rx,it was a trouble free piece of software,but have since been using CTM(free) with no issues for years now,plus it's free.

    Yeah I can't wait to see what 3.0 has to offer. Once that comes out and they finally push out Comodo firewall 6.0, I'll be happy. If you have Comodo firewall and CTM installed it actually gives you an option to take a snapshot before running a suspect file. I love the intergration.

    As Boost indicated, they are different types of apps. I use Rollback Rx with Shadow Defender (which I believe is the same type of app as Time Freeze). My system is always running Rollback Rx whereas I run Shadow Defender on-demand (usually when I'm surfing the web).

    Rollback is an ISR-type of app that takes snapshots of your system at various points in time and you can restore any snapshot in a couple of minutes. You can also recover individual files before they were changed/deleted. Rollback Rx actually allows you to roll-back and roll-forward in time. It's an awesome app (but it's not free)!

    I believe that Time Freeze is a light virtual app (similar to Shadow Defender) which allows you to run in a 'virtual space' when it is enabled. Any and all changes to the virtualized partitions are removed upon restarting the system.

    In theory that sounds great, but in reality may be a different story :cautious:

    Hey Scott, may I ask why you chose to use Shadow Defender and not SBIE?

    And when was the last time Shadow Defender was worked on and updated?

    Back to Toolwiz Time Freeze. They have just released v1.8.1.0

    I am just trying it out on my computers with SSDs. It is very good and stable so far. It has come a long ways since v1.6.0.0

    Shadow Defender doesn't work with SSDs, where as Toolwiz Time Freeze does and it also protects the MBR.

    Also, it is very fast boot times, no degradation on boot times on SSDs.

    Best regards,

    KOR!

    P.S. I like the way it enters and exits the virtualization, it is completely opposite of the other virtualization software I have known so far.

    Yes the program itself. I was referring to the intergration of CTM and the firewall.

    SD and SBIE are both excellent. I went with SD because it protects entire volumes whereas SBIE protects specific apps.

    I believe SD was last updated on March 31, 2011. As to whether SD is still being developed is anyone's guess (but it still works very well with Win7 and the Win8 preview)!

    Hth,

    How do you know if SD hasn't been found to have an exploit that has never been addressed?

    Mozart,

    I'm not aware of any exploit that has been discovered/reported within SD. If you are asking how do I know there isn't one inside which hasn't yet been discovered? - I don't. But I would also answer that by asking you how does one ever know about the existence of an exploit in any program if it hasn't been discovered?

    My point Scott was that programs such as SBIE or ToolWiz are being worked on and monitored for exploits and if any found, are addressed.

    But with SD, nobody is working on it anymore and not monitoring any exploits and if any were found, nobody would fix it either.

    But with SBIE and Toolwiz for example, they are constantly being watched by their programmers. That's what I like and makes me feel more comfortable, because as you said, you and I do not know, so it gives confidence that people who do know like tzuk and james are constantly monitoring the programs.

    I'll still put more trust into SD then Toolwiz.Toolwiz is new,SD has been around a loong long time and tested against a ton of malware,etc. Trusting software is more then having the newest,latest up to date software.

    Like I said,SD has proven itself against a ton of malware,you wanna know how TTF can do against malware,start doin some testing,I've spent years testing against malware,it's time you do the same in a case like this.
