    See the quote in my previous post. May be that is the combo GesWall-Cis that doesn't work in Seven, but I don't believe it.

    Naturally, but I had to uninstall Seven, and I don't want to re-install it only to test.

    Works with most browsers via the right click context menu ;)

    GesWall seems to be powerful than Bufferzone: GesWall isolate with restricted policies, Buffer virtualising. Is it ?

    DW or SBIE.

    Both very solid.

    Geswall didn't work for me on 7 too...if you're looking for an alternative, then your best bet would be DefenseWall which is a policy-based HIPS...but it isn't free. (30 days trial) There was a promotion on Gizmo that gave away an older version for free here:

    Get Top-rated DefenseWall HIPS for Free on Dec 10-12, (Expired)

    If you can find someone who has downloaded that during the promo period, you could ask for him/her to upload it on some file-sharing sites for you - I don't have it with me currently.

    Sandboxie and Bufferzone are more of a sandbox (virtualization/isolation) type - you can use either one (Sandboxie for it's features and extensibility and BufferZone for it's simplicity) but those aren't technically along the same lines as Geswall....just take note of that.

    Otherwise, you can look at using Comodo's Defense+ and it's sandbox - not to everyone's liking but since you asked, I'm just mentioning it as it is.

    Thanks. But if is an old version I'm not so sure to want it.

    Just I believed and suspected.

    I use CIS but not his sandbox, for:

    1 it's a useful feature for common users, but less strong and sure than Defense+ highest setted.

    2 I think, as I already said in Wilders, that a real multilayer defense means also NOT use an all-in-one suite.
