Which is better in Windows 7 Ultimate for malware prevention?
I would go with Sandboxie because you have more flexibility with it IMO.
Or drop Applocker and use Sandboxie + SRP.
Have you tried AppLocker for executables and scripts, leaving SRP to dll's (Applocker overrules SRP), since dll's seem to cause the trouble.
First: Go for a default SRP (basic user as default level, admins excluded, DLL's included), try whether Sandboxie works
Next overrule SRP with AppLocker for executables. When that works add Scripts to, etc.
Seems to be a good idea.I will try it.
I also vote for Sandboxie. Virtualisation > rights restriction.
I think sandboxie is easier to set. But Applocker is free.
To answer the OP, it depends on what u need. My PC main usage is browsing.
So using sandboxie :
I use portable browser (QTWeb) , the browser folder is sandboxed
Quick restore any download to the same folder.
All tight and secure, yet very easy to use
