    I noticed if I modify my computer clock during a shadow session, the change remains effective even after a computer restart. Did i just run into a new bug, or may be Shadow Defender is just conflicting with some other program?

    Smirs:

    I have had issues with time change from daylight savings time,my machine
    in Shadowmode,would add an hour,then when I rebooted out of ShadowMode,
    another hour would be added, (or subtracted depending on if it was "Spring Forward" or "fall back")

    If you are not from the USA,this is a little mnemonic we use to remember which way to turn our clocks.

    But what you are saying is clearly different from my case.
    A post their forums:http://www.shadowdefender.com/phpbb/index.php

    may be in order. Be ready to wait.
    Their is a direct line to Tony at: support@shadowdefender.com
    that may be quicker.

    respect,
    rat

    Not a bug, this is a normal functioning of ShadowDefender as with many other similar programs.:D

    Just to give here in this thread the explanation too, quoting from the Shadow Defender Forum (http://www.shadowdefender.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=296):

    Indeed the time is stored in the BIOS, some moderator over at SD forum has confirmed this as well. Don't mean to hijack my own thread though , what are some of the most effective ways to protect the system BIOS from modification.

    Thanks everybody for your input!
