Windows 7: Best Practices for configuring Returnil System Safe File Manager

Best Practices for configuring Returnil System Safe File Manager

I've searched around and it looks like many members are using RSS, but I've not seen any discussions on how to best set it up.

I've repaired my system, have an SSD as my system drive with my active data and an HDD for additional storage and backup. I've turned on RSS System Restore and AV, and want to turn on Virtual mode. I'm in the process of creating my file manager list. It's tedious to determine and select the minimum files and folders so that I am best protected.

I'm wondering if it's relatively safe to simply select my entire User directory (C:\users\me) , or at least the whole C:\users\me\AppData directory. I think I've grabbed what I need, but then get error messages like: "C:\users\me\ntuser.dat is in use by another process" AND then I can't select it as a file to add to the list. What's the solution to that? Or is that a file that is OK to get reset whenever I reboot? Does most malware only work if it's able to affect the Registry?

Also, where are all of the system log files for the Event Viewer located, so that I can include them in the file manager list.

Also, I've turned on System Restore. Do I need to make an image backup if I have that running?

To make room for an image backup, I tried to delete a file that was over 1GB in size. MSE then went into action to scan the file, even though my action was <shift> <delete>. OMG! My laptop was hung at high CPU and total disk thrash until I shut MSE down. Do I really need it anymore now that I've got RSS up and running with real time protection on?

Thanks in advance!

I just used the installed default settings in the free version. Returnil is very good protection, and the A/V is not needed or recommended if you allready have one. However i would recommend Sandboxie instead which should be on everybodies computer. Sandboxie is the best free protection period.

Thanks, I looked at sandboxie, but returnil seems to have other features that are attractive to me.

You may find your answer at returnils web site. It is a very good security app which can be used with Sandboxie.
