Shadow Defender is a utility , which can protect your computer from Virus and other malwares. It helps you to run a virtual environment and all the changes made will be on the virtual environment unless you intentionally tell the utility to make the changes to the real environment.
Shadow Defender can run your system in a virtual environment called 'Shadow Mode'. 'Shadow Mode' redirects each system change to a virtual environment with no change to your real environment. If you experience malicious activities and/or unwanted changes, perform a reboot to restore your system back to its original state, as if nothing happened.
