    Hi ratchet,
    No, Returnil will not save across reboots unless you commit the entire session to disk which would be a "permanent" change to the Real System. If you are testing mobile applications (no reboot required to install) then you can use RVS for testing, otherwise you should use a more appropriate environment like VMWare, VPC, etc

    AFAIK, only ShadowUser and FirstDefense-ISR (terminated) and FirstDefense-ISR Rescue (never tested myself) can handle reboot-softwares. I don't know about RollbackRx.
    ShadowDefender seems to be working on that issue according trjam.

    RollbackRx and Ez-Fix are the king in this function. they can hold more than 1000 points.

    Hi,

    To answer your question EA, with RollbackRX (and its clone) you can restore a snapshot made just before installation

    Regards,

    You can always say no to a reboot and try the app, or even stop and start explorer then see if the app works.

    I've done this a coupla times and the app asklng for a reboot seemed to work enough to try out.
