"Whew close one! Read summary!!"

October 26, 2009  |  By shaolin09123

 |  Version: Returnil Virtual System 2010 Home Free 3.0.6299.4937

Pros

None, I wasn't able to boot up after install!

Cons

Installed but was unable to boot system afterwords.

Summary

Installed the program and everything went ok. It asked me to reboot my system which I did. Windows boots up to a BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL stop 0x0000000a, total system failure. I was unable to boot into Windows. Ok, so I tried getting into Safe Mode. Every time I tried getting into Safe Mode, my computer would restart so unable to do anything there. Finally, I tried the, "Use last known good configuration", option and I was finally able to boot into Windows and uninstall this horrible software.

Thankfully and luckily, I was able to uninstall it and recover. Because if I had to format and reinstall all of my software because of this program, I would of been very very angry. If I were you, I wouldn't bother with this software.

"Does exactly what it says!"

October 20, 2009  |  By fgf1976

 |  Version: Returnil Virtual System 2010 Home Free 3.0.6299.4937

Pros

Customer support is prompt, informative and easy to work with. The Virus Guard scan is really fast and the System Safe protection is the best protection you can have against Malware.

Cons

I would like to see more protection against Malware, and some enhancements in the scan dialog.

Summary

I am very satisfied with this program. It scans the computer during the installation to ensure it is clean from viruses and other malware. This is a key process before creating the Virtual Session. I upgraded to RVS 2010 Home Lux at their special rate on their website and I am happy about it. Seems to be a great program and the customer support is fantastic.

"FLAWED, FLAWED, FLAWED..."

October 17, 2009  |  By hujan86

 |  Version: Returnil Virtual System 2010 Home Free 3.0.6299.4937

Pros

Protection through the virtual environment is a good idea, and it worked fine. But...

Cons

... many applications hang after I installed Returnil - IE, Windows Live Mail, Task Manager failed to run properly... Even when deleting files to the recycling bin would cause the entire system to hang.

Summary

This happens in both protected and unprotected mode. Only after uninstalling Returnil, everything went back to normal.

"Protects your system from being modified by others"

October 16, 2009  |  By JimsPOBox

 |  Version: Returnil Virtual System 2010 Home Free 3.0.6299.4937

Pros

Very transparent, needs no input from the user, returns your system back to where it was with ease

Cons

Had some difficulty disabling the program. Enabling it went fine

Summary

Seems to work fine and does hast it states. Just what i needed when I have guest over that use my computer and download or mess with the system. It allows them to do anything they want without my worrying since as soon as you reboot, the systems is restored to the way you had it before any changes. To use the computer normally, just disable the program, which can be password protected. A good program. I haven't found any Cons yet, except the problem on disabling.

"Not for the novice.."

October 16, 2009  |  By Esquirej

 |  Version: Returnil Virtual System 2010 Home Free 3.0.6299.4937

Pros

Doesn't allow changes to the system. Website is pretty informative...

Cons

Doesn't allow changes to the system; not for a novice. Website needs spell-checking.

Summary

I al allow looking to protect my laptop when I am on the road. I thought that this program was going to do the trick. To dismount the "vitual disk" requires a reboot (from my understanding). I tried to uninstall it, but remnants of the program stuck my laptop in a loop (like Groundhog Day). I had to re-download the same Windows updates over and over, my HL2 mod was stuck at the same save point, I "lost" an iTunes purchase, etc. I had to disable the service, delete the system23 folder and boot into safe mode to delete the Returnil folder. I had to use CCleaner to uninstall the entry. I finally was able to update Windows and my AV along with the iTunes song download. This program does what it says, but not being able to reinstall/uninstall because you can't turn off its system protection is a pain. In addition, I lost about 40 gigs that were recovered once I got it off my laptop. Read the website; typos abound which isn't a good sign.
