    U can try the antivirus, it will work, but u cant try MBR changing software like acronis True image(the application will prevent such changes).All changes are loaded after passing through the original system drivers.Only partiton level virtualisation like Fd-isr may work for true image.

    Comodo disk shield , is going to be software which may overtake rollback rx in its effeciency.But its causing some unbelievable problems if stable version is ever released.
    It is better than shadowuser in all respects.U must image ur computer b4 trying it.
