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:



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




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
