I'm having a few minor issues with Shadow Defender, & its support is nowhere to be found. Therefore, I want to start looking around for a replacement before I really REALLY need one. Returnil --- I made an image with ShaDef uninstalled so I could try substitutes. I tried Returnil but it evidently doesn't get along with something on my computer -- perhaps OnlineArmor or my imaging program (Image for Windows). I would get right toward the end of Returnil's installer & it would go to a black screen (BLACK screen of death). I tried shutting down (but not uninstalling) some of the possible conflicting software, but Returnil gave me a BSOD every time I tried installing it (3 times in all). The support forum had a similar case & asked the affected individual for various files & logs, but I am not yet desperate enough to get involved with that sort of bother. ShadowUser -- SU looks really good but they haven't updated it beyond WinXP. Even though I still am using XP, I do not want to knowingly buy abandoned-ware. PowerShadow -- Another candidate is Sino-based PowerShadow, but there is no trial. You must buy-it-first and (if you don't like it) you have 30-days to ask-for-your-money-back. Kind of spooky IMO but --- opinions would be appreciated. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ If anyone knows of any other ShaDef-similar software, please let me know.
