commit updates in a virtualized system (shadow defender)


Recommended Posts

I use tool called "Shadow Defender" to virtualize my whole operating-sytem drive, so when I reboot everything regarding on the operating system drive (partition) gets restored back to the point where I initialised "Shadow Defender" (Shadow Mode).

 

I have the option to commit a file or folder so it gets written to the actual operating system so it does not get removed after a reboot. I also have the option to exclude registry keys from removal after reboot (if those excluded keys get changed).

 

My questions:

 

1)

Is it enough to commit the following folders after an Malwarebytes update?:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

 

And are there certain registry keys that I have to put in the exclusion list?:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

 

 

2)

Although I should ask this in a Micsrosoft based forum:

Can the principle be applied for "Microsoft Security Essentials" ?

No this is not enough as there are other paths for files that get updated.

 

I don't use ShadowDefender so not tested but adding these folders should allow all required changes to be applied on an x64 version of Windows 7

 

C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes

C:\Users\All Users\Malwarebytes

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Malwarebytes
