Shadow Defender is the best easy-to-use PC/laptop security and privacy protection tool for Windows operating systems. It provides an excellent way to prevent unwanted or malicious changes from being made to your PC/laptop. With Shadow Defender you can run system in a virtual environment, called Shadow Mode. And all the attacks will happen in the virtual environment, not in the real environment. If attacks happened, all you need to do is to reboot your system. After reboot, your system will be restored to the original state, as if nothing happened. And meanwhile you can save any selected files and folders to the real environment.

It’s interface is a simple one, with an area to put the computer into Shadow Mode, an area to exclude certain files or folders, and a configuration zone. There is also an option called Commit Now, but what exactly this does is a bit unclear, even after reading the Shadow Defender user manual! The configuration options can be found under Administration and are fairly basic – you can set a password, enable context menu features and a tray icon, but that’s pretty much it.


1. Prevent any unknown and future virus.

2. Protect your privacy effectively.

3. Eliminate the system downtime and PC/laptop maintenance cost.

4. Surf the internet safely.
