Editors' review

This handy application effectively prevents unauthorized changes to your computer's settings, yet user interaction is limited. Upon installation you'll find Drive Vaccine docked in your system tray, where you can easily access its functions, configure the program settings, and enable protection. To activate, you need to perform a system restart, which enables protection from any changes that can be made to your computer.

We were pleased that the program really doesn't affect how users work. Changes made in your computer, such as altering the desktop theme, installing software, or deleting a file, are reverted back to their original state after the machine is restarted. That's because Drive Vaccine creates a password-protected storage area in your hard drive's free space where it stores the changes made in your computer. Once you restart, that drive is emptied and used again.

Drive Vaccine runs in your system unnoticed and it doesn't create shortcuts in the Start Menu and desktop. This program works well in protecting your system settings, especially if your computer sees several users per day, and can be a nice addition to your defense arsenal.
