    As far as i know, Returnil Premium and Shadow Defender can both commit changes on the hard disk, so that they will stay after the reboot. Both are paid though.

    I hope in near future something come around that make it possible,with current techn. its not possible,except for full virt. app. like VMWare,Virt.Box and the like.

    I get it that OP meant to keep changes in a virt. environment after reboot....nice with software installs that require a reboot,only i can think of are the full virt. environments.

    Shadow Defender doesn't allow installed programs that requires a re-boot to carry over after re-boot as far as I understand it, it just allows you to "commit" files and/or folders which will carry over onto the "real" drive after re-boot.

    Shadow Defender runs on Windows 2000, Returnil doesn't.

    ShadowUser from Storagecraft can do a reboot for programs that require it in what they call 'persistent mode'. I do have the program on my XP laptop, and I have been recommending it as it is really set it and forget it.

    I don't recommend it anymore for the following reasons: It hasn't been updated for Vista, it is still fairly expensive (69 $), and most importantly it seems to have bugs related to NEW hardware (core 2 + CPUs) which Storagecraft should really address as it is still on sale.

    A real pity as this was the original and the most complete of all virtualizers, probably killed by piracy.

    Another option you can try is AYRECOVERY which is currently offering it free for a year. It allows you to save or revert changes even after multiple reboots.
