RX is free if you create no more than 7 snapshots (which is enough for average users).

AX64 was awesome but is dead now, its original dev made the mistake to sell it to a BS company.

Rollback Rx has two versions, Pro ($70-ish) and Home (Free). You can use the Home Edition. It's not as feature rich, but will do the basic function. Here's a comparison page they have which details the differences. You can also get Rollback Rx Pro on sale. Usually in the Fall HDS has a few sales for the Pro Edition (usually 50% off)

Are you looking for just the snapshot feature for testing or rollback infections?

If so, another alternative although done slightly different would be Shadow Defender, which rollsback changes upon reboot, can have exclusions created although not recommended, better used as a on demand, it is cheap and a lifetime license.

Shadow Defender - the easiest PC/laptop security and privacy protection tool

I have shadow defender, but i like something who takes a snapshot or create a system image (ligthweigth) something like AX 64 because if i test something sometimes have to reboot to that program take efect for example if i install a security product i have to reboot and then if i dont like it i have to uninstall and shadow defender will delete this product in every reboot. Sorry bad english and terrible grammar

No worries understand you quite well, have you given thought to using a virtual machine for this, virtual box is free and easy to set up for light application testing and allowing you to restart the OS for applications. It is what I have used on one system for application/update testing before applying to the host... I utilize Shadow Defender on the other system for kids education/teaching...

Rollback rx restores your PC to the previous state, when you want to, most likely never, unless you encounter some problem.

Reboot rx does it every reboot. It is like VM or live OS, you run it and after restart you start fresh. In theory, it is 100% effective against malware. It is mostly meant for public computers, like internet cafe, so the provider does not have to deal with bloatware or changed settings.

Is courious but for some reazon virtualbox is heavy on my system i dont know why, because i use it for gamming
VB itself is heavy on the Host or your guest machines you are creating seem sluggish?
I would need details to narrow that down, such as your system hardware configuration and what you are allocating to the guest machine.
