The first part deals with the best free Virtual Machine Applications to use with Windows XP. I found this article a month ago dealing with the "Five Best Virtual Machine Applications" ... four are free although one is for Linux only and another has a basic free and a paid version. I was hunting for a strictly free version ... I was aware of the free one by M$: Windows Virtual PC but was searching for anything else that might be available. I decided to try the free one by Oracle: VirtualBox. I liked working with it and had no install problems so I didn't try the other two free ones. At the bottom of the article there are results of a poll taken and VirtualBox seems to well liked by many. Also, found other people liking it at other Google links. Did I miss any other "free" ones not mentioned in the article? ... what are the feelings at this forum for VirtualBox or another program?

Now I'd like to ask for opinions on programs like System Restore but probably much better. Today the Giveaway of the Day deal is Shadow Defender 1.2 ... as usual, people will mention something just as good (better) and also free. Two free alternatives mentioned today were Reboot Restore Rx and Toolwiz Time Freeze. I have not heard of either one of them ... I was also checking some programs like this in April and came across some mentions of programs that were not free ... such as RollBack RX an etc ... those two free alternatives mentioned earlier look very interesting and I have downloaded them to try out. Just wondering if anyone has some other programs worth mentioning.

better web site ...
I am interested in being able to undo everything when testing some software program and it doesn't work well ... I was also working with Sandboxie in April and liked that program for testing and being able to get rid of something easily. I will admit that VirtualBox by Oracle was really nice for a free program ... I had an XP VM setup but easily could put Windows 2000 and Windows 98SE on it also.
Just looking for input on likes - dislikes of the above ... especially Sandboxie, I haven't worked that much with it. I had to redo my XP setup with my Ghost backup so I have nothing installed for now ... thought I post this first to see what others have to say. thanks ...
