Windows 7: Returnil Virtual System 2010 - Free Today

Returnil Virtual System 2010 - Free Today

October 18, 2009

Returnil Virtual System 2010 uses combination of antivirus, antimalware and a virtual system to protect your computer from all types of viruses and other malicious threats. The success of a product not only depends on its features and performance, but also on ease of installation. Upon installation, RVS automatically scans the system for viruses and other malicious software, which is essential for a safe and secure virtual environment.

Once the system has been confirmed to be free from malware, RVS 2010 clones (copies) your operating system and runs the cloned copy in a virtual system, allowing you to run applications in a completely isolated environment, rather than using the real operating system. Therefore, all activity, malicious or otherwise, will happen in the virtual environment, not in the real PC. If the PC is attacked or gets infected, simply restart your PC to erase all malicious changes that may have been installed on the virtual system. After restart, the system will be restored to its original state, as if nothing ever happened.

Hi there

I don't want to discourage people from developing stuff - that's how new products get into the mainstream - but this one IMO is really a 100% No-hoper and a total waste of machine and users time.

If you want to test something what's wrong in using a "Classical" VM -- there's enough FREE software around such as XP mode, vmware virtual server, Virtual PC, QEMU, XEN, Virtual Box etc etc).

In any case I think users on this Forum know my feelings about HOME computer AV software (not corporate stuff BTW) -- Just take reasonable common sense precautions and you'll never be bothered with spy / mal other ware.

Today the main problem is not so much in people hacking computers but DEFRAUDING etc via perfectly "Non Virial" methods -- such as phishing, fake (but perfectly crafted without viruses) web sites, unsolicted email requests for passwords / security info, impersonation etc etc.

This is where the money is to be made -- or in "Denial of Service" attacks for Ransom against service providers.

Virus writing to hack and infect Home computers is a bit passe these days. Soceity has moved on with "bigger fish to fry" -- and online (and offline too) FRAUD is HUGE business today.

Perhaps there was too much emphasis on the anti-malware side of Returnil. I've tried it, a couple of years ago, and the biggest use I put it to was to test out apps or configurations. If I didn't like what I saw, I just rebooted and the changes went away - no need to set a restore point, try to clean out the registry, etc.

If you use it as a testbed to play with different "what if" scenarios, it has its benefits. If you want to run a VM for malware defense, there are a number of solutions, as mentioned.

NOTE: A number of negative comments at the link on this software.
