    "It's can make your downloads disappear when rebooting"

    February 09, 2013   |   By The_China_Doctor

    Version: Shadow Defender (32-bit) 1.2.0.355

    Pros

    It can be useful only, if you are expert enough to create a list of directories (or files) to be excluded from this software ability to keep your drive exactly as it was when you first booted it in the morning. This is called "EXCLUSION LIST" in this software protocol.

    Cons

    The big problem I foresee, for most inexperienced users, they will loose all their downloads of the day, if they have not deposited them in a directory identified in the so called "EXCLUSION LIST", they have to create when they first use this "Shadow Defender" --- This is what happened to 80% of the non professionals I've submitted this program for them to test it... they've lost all their downloads.

    Summary

    In short, , you will need a lot of patience when transferring downloaded files from their original directory where there are first deposited on your "C" drive, to your directory of choice identified in the "EXCLUSION LIST" --- For reasons related to the protective shield created by this software on your computer, it takes an eternity to copy from the download directory, to you directory of choice identified in the "EXCLUSION LIST".

    "Limited use for safe program installation"

    June 26, 2012

    Version: Shadow Defender (32-bit) 1.1.0.331

    Pros

    After Shadow Mode is enabled, all changes are lost after reboot.

    Cons

    It's not possible to retain changes when rebooting into Shadow Mode (unlike the WIN XP-only ShadowUser), so program installations which require a reboot, as many do, are not possible and therefore cannot be tested safely under Shadow Defender.

    "Great security, however..."

    September 08, 2010   |   By pvsurfer

    Version: Shadow Defender (32-bit) 1.1.0.325

    Pros

    After trying most every variety of security app, this is truly the most secure that you can add to a Windows system. Nothing can penetrate Shadow Mode to get to your system (unless you want it to). Even better protection than ISR products!

    Cons

    Outside of user-support, there is none to be had from the developer, who has disappeared. The product now appears to be a dead-end and that is really too bad.

    Summary

    If you are already a registered user, continue to use and love it until it for as long as you can.

    If you are not a registered user, I would not buy into what now appears to be a dead-end product.

    Summary

    With this I don't need to install anti-virus that i have to update on a daily basis and may compromise cpu resources and slow down my laptop. ='P
