Update: Wondershare Time Freeze 1.0.0 is now a permanent freebie (it has been renamed to Wondershare Time Freeze Free and appears to be registered freeware). Wondershare Time Freeze 2.0.0 costs $39.
By now, I am sure all dotTechies have heard of Returnil Virtual System. Wondershare Time Freeze is a program very similar to Returnil Virtual System. In other words, Wondershare Time Freeze, like Returnil Virtual System, creates a “virtual layer” on top of your computer files and allows you to get rid of all changes made to your computer after a reboot (you also have the option to keep all changes). Here are the full features of Wondershare Time Freeze as per the developer:
Now Wondershare Time Freeze is a fairly new product – meaning it has not passed the test of time – so to say it is “better” than Returnil Virtual System (especially considering RVS has a free edition for home users) would be a bit of a stretch. However, it is another alternative people can look for if RVS does not work for them.
To promote their new product, Wondershare is running a promotion where everyone can get Wondershare Time Freeze for free!
