Nice tool for security

Hi everyone, I just come across the term vertualization. after some searching i downloaded RVS 2010. It is working fine no noticable change in CPU and RAM uses. Now i think even if my AV miss something and i m infected i know i am just a reboot away for complete curation. In theory this is perfect. I m interested to know how good it is in real life?? Have u guys used such vertualization product, please share your views and experience. Thanks in advance...

hi.....returnil is a good addition but do remember to turn it on when dabbling with the unknowns and learn to exclude folders for saving your work if you plan to keep it on....it uses f-prot av engine which is oky-doky...shadow defender is its better brother though

visit their official forum at wilders....for more info...beta and help

In an elevated cmd prompt type driverquery. Look at the list, if you see sptd as a driver,iIt may be from that program. SPTD is known to cause BSOD.

You are fine. I saw the term virtualiaztion and just wanted to be sure that there was no SPTD driver

On another note, you have some old drivers, you may want to update them.
Anything older than 7/09, may be less than current.

Here is part of the answer, check back for my second link.
How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

Here is the second link that I promised

- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

This article may help you with finding new drivers: How to update a Windows hardware driver Its written for xp, but the principles are the same. The only difference is where device manager can be found, otherwise I think it's good.

How are these different from the Try N Decide mode in Acronis?

It makes a virtual enviroment on a seperate partition or HD, and keeps all changes there.
When finished doing whatever you you want, you can just just dump it all and be back to where you before it started, or keep all changes.
So anything you do really never gets done to the OS.

Just curious how they are different.
