    Altiris SVS can't be used to test security software and other applications which install themselves deep into the OS :)

    I saw that in the manual after I downloaded the antivirus.

    I've posted on altiris forum about my problem, which after digging into the manual a bit seem to be several.

    I deliberately deleted Firefox from my computer and downloaded it again and went through the svs installation exactly according to the manual. This is the latest version of free svs. First thing I noticed when I opened the firefox exe was no little lightning bolt thing. The circle with the v in it just spins away.

    I figured maybe they did away with the lightning bolt in this version. So, I downloaded a small game. Went through all the steps and it ran fine until I closed the game. It wouldn't re-open, saying the same thing as I got earlier in the day, virtual drivers not installed. On reboot, the layer is still there but it flat won't open.

    I know I'm missing something but I, for a change, actually did follow the steps in help word for word.

    Neither can sandboxie etc.

    I think Altris SVS does have a place it's not quite the same as sandboxie. I don't think Altris SVS is meant for security. It's more for application management.

    And yes, beyond the basics, it gets quite complex to handle....

    Couldn't agree more. Want to have Office 2003, Office 2007 and Open Office 2.3 installed in the same box? Go for Altiris SVS.
