this looks promising and now how is in cpu?ram?
So it looks like the free version supports only IE browser and MSN chat client? Any other limitations? What about email clients?
When installing BZ-free does it require a restart?
Yes it does require re-boot..
is it running well together with SBIE ?
thet run good together?
Haven't tried with SandboxIE yet. But why do you require two virtualization?
AvinashR are you running BZ?
I'm not requiring 2 virtualization just in case, I had SBIE in my main PC and Geswall in other. I was not impressed with GW and thinking to replace it.
30 - 40 MB RAM CPU is great no slow downs on my PC, I am trialling the full version I do believe it requires a restart.
IMHO this is an excellent piece of software, I will be buying the full version after I complete my trial.
I haven't found anything negative I could pass on while using it.
Does what it is meant to, and does it well.
I was surprised by the amount of programs that still work in BZ even after a reboot.
I have had no changes made to the real system, even though I have downloaded 10 - 20 zero-day links from MDL over the past 21 days.
I am running it together with Rollback Rx.
@overangry this is cool man
Ahhh, two xml files are not included, so the free version can not be tricked into a full version. They have hardcoded the limitations
Differences with old freeware version
1. Allows to select sandboxing scripts of any application
2. Allows regular/scheduled maintenance of sandbox
Compared to sandboxie free it only offers IE8 and messenger protection (no choice of other aps). On the plus side it does not have a nag screen and is dead simply to use (no ini file tweaking), and it allows windows updates through ie8. it tags sandboxed files with an icon. So It is an ideal step for people intrested in application virtualisation.
Looks like I'll still be using COMODO as my main isolation app. Lookng forward to v4.1 of it.
I dont know. BufferZone and Hitman Pro or Prevx might be a cool combo. Hmmmmmmm.
Not too hard Kees. Drag and drop.
Sandboxie is way better for my needs.
hey franklyn good idea drag_n_drop
I'm interested in this BZ snapshot function.Does it allow the creation of multiple snapshots and are you able to 'move' back and forward with them?
Same with andyman. How's the snapshot function work?
The firewall looks quite simple too. The full version seems to have a fair few extra features.
Is this needed in my LUA/SRP environment Windows XP PC?
EDIT: can't wait for an answer, I'll try it out now.
I didn't know it:is more like Sandboxie or GesWall ? Like GesWall it seems....
Ah. I'm keeping this.
by the way... the drag and drop doesnt work on my computer.
Windows XP Pro SP3 (LUA/SRP)
I tried to drag n drop Google Chrome in Bufferzone but nothing happened.
anyway... I'm not needing Chrome anymore.. I prefer to use IE now.
