ToolWiz TimeFreeze can protect your system from damage or malware attacks. It uses a technique called “virtualization” to freeze your system at a given point so that ulterior actions, such as installations and other types of program activities, cannot leave permanent changes. Thus, this program’s protective “umbrella” covers sensitive system areas, such as the Registry, files and folders.
Once the initial configuration task has been completed, the application is quite easy-to-use. From then on, the program will run in the System Tray, while a floating bar will allow you to toggle virtualization on and off. Besides freezing your system, the application can also lock files to protect them from intruders. Moreover, all the operations are properly password-protected, and the program can be set to start along with the operating system. It is a good thing that the program lets you decide whether you want to keep the changes made while in TimeFreeze mode or not.
In general, ToolWiz TimeFreeze can be a real help for IT specialists when they need to keep the computers they are in charge of clean and safe from ill-intentioned usage. What is more, software reviewers can also benefit from secure tests of unknown applications. Finally, as it works as a virtual system, there is the logical deceleration, but it is only a slight one.
