I've long held that computers should have a "Grandma mode", that locks the drive down and doesn't allow any changes to be made, no matter what
"permission" is given, and you can restore the thing with a single click when something does sneak through.
They have that.
It's called using a combo of Sandboxie and either RollBack RX or Comodo Time Machine. Rollback RX is better but can be buggy so you still need to
backup. Comodo time machine can also be buggy..
For some reason spme people never have problems with these programs and yet others have tons.. if bad they can crash your system worse than the virus
But when they work, they are major life savers. Comodo Time Machine is also free unlike Rollback RX.
These programs work like setting a restore point but even better.. a windows restore point can be corrupted because they are on your hard drive ( same
as your C drive). These programs install themselves in a hidden encrypted layer Underneath your C drive. It's essentially on th same physical disk
yes, but in a locked off location nothing in your system can ever access. The restore points are stored there. A virus can wipe your entire C drive
out.. delete all contents 100% leaving Nothing on your drive - and these programs will bring back you entire operating system in 5 minutes tops - when
they do work LOL.. Still worth a try for protection.. it may work fine with your mother in laws PC.. just make a good backup to test it out.. just in
Likewise Sandboxie creates a sandbox on your c drive that prevents anything from the interner or your email from passing into the system. There is a
