Free Wondershare Time Freeze

One of the best options to keep an operating system safe is to use virtualization. Virtualization ensures that everything that happens in the virtual environment is not affecting the real computer system. Benefits of this approach include preventing threats from malicious software such as viruses and spyware and leaving no traces on a computer system after restart.

Wondershare Time Freeze is a virtualization solution much like Returnil [1], Sandboxie [2] or Comodo Time Machine [3]. The software is usually offered for $39 but free for a limited time. Users can request a free license for Time Freeze [4] by entering their name and email in the form on the official website.

Time Freeze uses an interesting system. It is possible to enter protected mode and get rid of all changes afterwards by rebooting the system or to leave the protected mode and apply the changed data to the original system. That’s interesting for users who regularly test new programs and applications. Instead of testing them in protected more, rebooting and installing them again if they want to use them they simply can install them in protected mode and leave that mode to keep the software installed. There is obviously a danger to that as well if the user cannot assess the situation correctly.

Wondershare Time Freeze offers both a system protection and folder protection.
