Last year I tried one of these programs but I ended up in a repair loop an had to reinstall windows 8.1. I just recently got a new windows 10 laptop an decided I might want to try one of these programs again, of course this time around I will be making a system image (Just in case I get unlucky again.). I wanted to hear from some people who have used either of these programs, to help me decide on which one I want to go with.

In my experience these programs were quite different from eachother. I like both, but for me I find Shadow Defender to be feature-wise not quite what I'm looking for. Rollback is good but you should know it's various limitations before you use it. I think the company touts it as an all-in-one solution but in reality it's vulnerable to hardware failiure and corrupted BIOS'. Still, if you can compensate for these downfalls as I have it's a reliable program.

I was leaning towards rollback rx, only thing I'm not sure on is the rootkit false positive I read about. Even knowing it's just a false positive I'm not that good with seeing the word "Rootkit" appear in a scan lol.

Yeah that happened to me too. I talked with one of their reps for a good while asking them about various things (this included) and apparently it comes down to the AV solution recognizing their program. Apparently they've submitted their program to AV solutions so they will recognize it. Still it's not a good thing, and a lot of people won't go to a forum or whatever they'll just not use the program. Still, I think this is moreso an issue with AV solutions then anything but that's just my two cents  :tophat:
