Advanced Desktop Shield is a program to protect your desktop settings.

When you start the program you are given options to save your desktop state, load a desktop state and delete existing records all through buttons across the right side of the screen. While the button placement seems a bit odd and uncomfortable(most programs have buttons on the left)  the program itself does okay in spite of this minor visual flaw.

When you save the condition of your desktop things like wallpaper, icons, and screensaver are all stored. If these should get messed up some how, you can then restore your desktop to a saved state. The program does do what it claims, which is save and restore desktops.

However, this is not really that impressive in my mind and I don't think it deserved a forty nine dollar price tag. The program has a help file, should you need one, however I don't think most people will because even with the awkward lay out its still fairly easy to use.
