My computer is shared by a lot of family members. Most of them don't know anything about computer security and some don't even care what the results of their changes may be.

For this reason, I want to prevent them from installing or changing anything from the system.

I've heard some programs that restores the system upon reboot.

Can anyone suggest a reliable and secure freeware.

:thumbsup: Thanks! :flowers:

Returnil is one such program, both a free and paid version are available.

Official Forums are HERE.

The good people over at Wilder's Forums have a lot of experience with this type of software and will be able to offer more advice on similar programs.


Edit: Spelling.
