Sorry to hear that you are not happy with Pocket Backup and here is some possible explanation for what you are seeing.
On hard reset, the operating system creates new shortcuts for the start menu. These shortcut files are not deleted by Pocket Backup when you do a restore operation, because the application doesn't delete files that were not in the backup. (This is safest and most often convenient).
As for PocketTV, I'm not sure how where they store the registration information, if it is in the registry, then it would be restored. If they use a combination of registry, + object identification information (OID), then there may be an issue because, when an object is created on restore (e.g. file or database record), it gets a diffent object id than it originally had. I'm not sure that there is anything that we can do about that. I'd be interested in having a look at the Pocket Backup log files created on backup and restore.
Hope this helps.
