    I would go with Sandboxie because you have more flexibility with it IMO.

    Or drop Applocker and use Sandboxie + SRP. :D

    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.

    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 :D
