I found this "free" program (Returnil) and was wondering if it is worthwhile to download and if it's easy to use.
Thanks
Tom

This appears to be a virtualization program. It creates a sort of "sandbox" where you can do what you want and any changes made will not be permanent. This is useful if don't have internet security programs or if you have many guests using your computer. Some schools use programs like this to keep students from making long-lasting changes to the computer; think DeepFreeze. If you make alot of major changes to Windows and if you're unsure of the results, I can understand using this. Just simply reboot to restore. For some users, I don't see the need for this program if you're the sole user, if you don't surf to dangerous sites, or if you have a good internet security program.

Thanks DJBPace07. Just the reply I needed. The family and I are the only ones using the computer so I guess I will pass on this program.
Thanks again
Tom
