    One or two processes running on the computer after its installation are same as when I installed Rollback Rx. It does not appear to be a clone, more of an illegal copy to me. I will test it for a couple of days and see if it gives me any problems.

    It seems to be EAZ Fix rebranded?

    Note that this is from Anyue Technology Co., who make AyRecovery (which is related to EF and RB)!

    It's a bit confusing .It states an evaluation expiration of 367 days but 7 days are stated in the last paragraph?

    So EAZ Solutions is just another name for Anyue Technology?
    Or better, probably EAZ Solutions controls also Anyue Technology and they use 2 different company names to basically promote the same product.

    So we have: Horizon coproducing with EAZ Solutions, which on her turn, is also behind Anyue Technology, which on her turn sells the same product with 2 other names? (PC Time machine and AyeRecovery).

    Wow... Talk about company mysteries.

    Yup, every member of 'the family' seems to be 'rooted' with Eaz Solutions.

    However, it's been 10-years since Andrew Shen, et al, received a patent for their 'innovative invention' and seeing that Comodo is in beta with a similar 'Time Machine' product, I'm guessing that the patent expired. We will probably see other copy-cats.

    This is hilarious.

    First google result for Anyue Technology:

    http://www.k62.net/index.php

    On top and left side, it advertises Ayerecovery. Then you get "What is EAZ Fix"? :D

    I don't know if EAZ Solutions owns Anyue or the opposite, but they seem that the 2 companies are very closely linked.

    Sorry Aaron, but that doesn't compute. Depending on the date a US patent was actually filed it would expire either 17 years or 20 years from that date.

    well the website design is basically a direct copy of the PC Tools website... which just from that is too much of a similarity to Rogue AV's... not gunna waste my time with a product like this.

    Actually, I never registered, so it was showing 7 days left. When I registered, it is now showing 366 days left. I guess, the last paragraph is for those who do not register.

    But if it is a clone of Rollback/Eaz-fix than it is not for me as they cause problems on my 32-bit Vista.
