Shadow Defend Your Hard Drive

Shadow Defender is a PC software that protects you from viruses and unwanted changes. How it works? Shadow Defender runs your system in a virtual environment called ‘Shadow Mode’. ‘Shadow Mode‘ redirects system changes to a virtual environment with no change to your real environment.

You wont even notice you are working in a Virtual environment. The only way to tell is that it says shadow mode on the top middle of the screen.
