ShadowSurfer - free now
« on: June 21, 2006, 11:07:08 PM »
ShadowSurfer Benefits:

    * Prevent spyware and pop-ups
    *
      Avoid viruses and worms
    * Surf the internet without a trace of unwanted cookies, internet history and intrusive cyberjunk
    * Install and use trialware, shareware or games and discard with a simple reboot
    * Multiple Users - restore your PC after other users on your computer have made unwanted changes
    * Windows support for 2000 and XP

ShadowSurfer ShadowModeâ„¢ provides a safe computing environment by creating a virtual twin of your PC. Restore the pre-ShadowMode state of your computer no matter what changes have occurred.
==========================
it costs US29.95, but it's free now:

http://www.storagecraft.com/surfer.html

- reasonable memory usage, 2 processes use roughly 8MB of RAM, no slowdown whatsoever.

- requires lots of reboot, enable==>reboot, disable==>reboot.

- wont work for trialware that require reboot, becoz after a reboot it's all gone.

- i will keep it as reboot is much faster than making a new image with TI.
If you find a good solution and become attached to it, the solution may become your next problem.

Yep: I installed it, but I don't think I'm going to give it a good going over... There are a few too many reboots!

The concept is great, and I originally thought that this would be a great way to stop the kids installing stuff on my computer (without locking them out), but it's not quite like that.

I've since taken the interest this generated and am looking at http://www.sandboxie.com/, which seems to do more of what I want.
