What if I told you I could make your PC “crash-proof”, would you believe me? Well, that’s just what Jackson Backup is touting with their Armor Card. Now, that’s not to say your PC won’t lockup as most running Windows are prone to do. But, you don’t have to worry about a system crash. Go ahead, make whatever changes you want. Change the icons, themes, wallpapers, system files, etc. Reboot and all changes are undone. Format the hdd with a floppy? No problem, reboot and all changes are undone. Get the idea.

Having been in the business for over 10 years, they have good knowledge of what it takes to make a system secure and stable. We’ll see just how well that translates to the real world.

Features

What exactly are the features of the Armor card? Well, according to JB they are:
