As promised earlier this week, we have a real treat for everyone this weekend: Everyone can get a 1 year license of Returnil Virtual System 2010 Home Lux for free! Before I delve into how to get the 1 year license, let me give a quick overview of what RVS 2010 is for those that don’t know.
Returnil Virtual System 2010 is a unique security software that protects your computer in an unorthodox manner. RVS 2010 uses a powerful combination of anti-virus, anti-malware, and a virtual system to protect your computer from all types of viruses and unwanted system changes. The traditional security software like Avira, Kaspersky, Norton, AVG, NOD32, etc. actively, and on demand, detect and remove infected files. RVS 2010, on the other hand, has a two pronged attack to the malware problem:
- Virtual System – RVS creates a “virtual copy” of your main system partition (the partition which you have Windows installed) and whatever changes are made to your computer are dumped when you restart your computer (there are opinions to tweak how it does that, but generally speaking, that is how it works).
- Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware – RVS also includes the traditional anti-virus/anti-malware live protection and on-demand scanning features.
Because of this two pronged approach which incorporates traditional and innovative protection capabilities, if used properly, a user can keep his/her computer 100% clean with RVS 2010.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long are the licenses we are getting?
A: They are 1 year licenses (12 months).
Q: How long will this promotion last?
A: This promotion will end at 12 AM (Pacific Standard Time) on Monday December 14, 2009. At that time, new licenses will no longer be given out.
Q: If I already have a subscription of RVS 2010 Home Lux, can I still use your license?
A: Yes! However, the license you get via dotTech will “replace” your license so only use it if you have less than 12 months left on your subscription.
Q: Is there a shelf life to the license?
A: Sort of. You can only get the license for free until this promotion lasts. However, after you get the license, you can activate it anytime from now and 12 months from now. The catch is the clock starts to tick once you get the license so if you, for example, activate it 6 months from now you will only have 6 months left on it.
