Hi guys, here's my Shadow Defender review :)

Shadow Defender is a comprehensive and reliable software solution designed to protect your computer from malware, viruses and a variety of other threats that can influence and change your system's settings and contents.

In essence, the utility is fairly simple to understand. It creates a clone of your original PC, using all or just one user-defined system drives when entering what is called 'Shadow Mode', similar to a virtual environment. This way, any alterations, attacks or settings were applied in 'Shadow Mode', will be instantly discarded when switching it off.

Shadow Defender provides you with two methods of going into 'Shadow Mode', namely 'Exit Shadow Mode at Shutdown' and 'Enter Shadow Mode on Boot', enabling you to select whichever you prefer best.

Shadow Defender prevents any permanent damage from being afflicted on your computer, so regardless of the activities you perform, files you download or documents you modify, when exiting 'Shadow Mode', they will instantly be reverted to their initial state.

However, the program allows you to specify certain folders and files that will be excluded from 'Shadow Mode', thus keeping any changes you might have made, even when exiting from this protection environment, and committing them to the original volume automatically. Similarly, you can add one or more 'Registry' items to the exclusion list, thus applying all modifications to them.

Additionally, Shadow Defender offers a manual method of permanently saving a file or change to the volume, specifically by using the 'Commit Now' function. This can be found in the program's interface, but it also integrates into your context menu, enabling you to right-click the item you want to save and select the 'Commit by Shadow Defender' option.

To summarize, Shadow Defender is an interesting application that provides you with a new means of protecting your PC both from virus attacks and their negative influence on your system's files.

However, Shadow Defender is not free and if you want program that does same job, you can use TimeFreeze by Toolwiz.

Here's short video about it :

:) Hi all its nice to be here,
looking for your thoughts,
I been watching the thread about Tiranium Internet security for a while, so I said i give it a try, and discovered something interesting,
I use shadow defender , and when I ran Tiranium's red alert mode , it broke shadow defender and resulted in the pc been stunk in safe mode., I repeated this twice with shadow defender v.519 and 553 same result,
I seen shadow defender stand up to many malware and and have run and tested out many programs in shadow mode , Tiranium is the first program I seen to break shadow mode so well ..
thankfully I always have a image backup just in case .

2011 Release and update

The Tiranium Red Alert desactivate all the startup items and services, clear StartUp and AppData and activate the Windows Safe mode.
In this case, Shadow Defender is desactivated too.

Hi Dubseven I know what Tiranium Red Alert dose, The Issue I encountered was a state of permanent safe mode , the pc was unable to boot back to normal mode full stop even after a cold start .
whether this issue was caused by Tiranium Red Alert or Shadow Defender, or another conflicting software I done know,

You can desactivate the red alert with CTRL + ALT + A combinaison or with starting Tiranium Panel :)
