Final Thoughts

Rollback RX simplifies software and hardware testing, fully reverses computer crashes, and enables users to instantly undo software-related problems in mere seconds. It doesn't just clean-up software installations or malware infections, it fully reverses them with no leftovers left behind littering your disks. RX can fully undo infections caused by the vast majority of the more conventional malware out there; it has to be noted, however, that it is still vulnerable to certain rare sophisticated malware, like the TDSS/TDL family or rootkits.

That's where the usefulness of a top Light Virtualization program like

Shadow Defender comes into play. The rootkit-isolating capabilities of Shadow Defender perfectly complement Rollback's ultimate degree of control over a system's setup and configuration. On top of that you also get Shadow Defender's RAM cache feature which allows systems to run directly from RAM. This makes systems much more responsive and saves disks from taking any write hits. No write hits also means no disk traces of deleted data left behind. It all stays in RAM and gets flushed at the next reboot, perfect for the more paranoid among us.

While Rollback RX and Shadow Defender are both great programs on their own, when these two programs are used together, they provide a great overall safety net for Windows systems. As far as my experience goes, I think Rollback RX and Shadow Defender are simply a marriage made in software heaven.

But even when used on its own, Rollback RX is still a superb program that offers so much when used properly. It is feature-rich, very stable, and extremely easy to use. Using such a utility for the first time is often a one-way-street. You will soon find yourself used to RX's instant recoveries and just couldn't do without it. I cannot stress enough the superior degree of control that this program provides over the exact setup and configuration of a Windows system. Rollback RX is a quite simply an exceptional instant recovery utility.
