I'm experimenting with new software on a test laptop. The software makes entries to the registry so what I want to do is test the software, then completely return the laptop to the state it was in before I tested. I tried Acronis Workstation 9.1 and Home 11.0 and they aren't doing what I thought they would. For example I did a complete backup image, then installed the software, restored the image and the software I installed was still there. So I used the System Restore Wizard and took it back to the earlier state. However that takes a very long time.
What do you recommend?
