    Nice app, Thanks.

    But for some reason it doesnt let firefox start on my pc:

    Get the error msg with FF 2.0.0.7:

    "Firefox is already running, but is not responding..."

    Firefox doesnt start!

    Can anyone help me with this issue?

    Also browsing and system performance has also taken a hit :(
    This app isnt lightweight like sandboxie.

    Ok can anyone help me with this issue?

    Wow, again? it wasnt too long ago (two three weeks?) since the last time it was on GAOTD.
    It seems like it is the same version as the last time.

    Anyone know whats going on with bufferzone? it doesnt seem to update too often, any new version on the horizon?
    It would be nice if they fixed the bug that makes Roboform useless, or Vista support would be nice too.

    Thanks but has way too many bugs for me (Firefox, WMP, Roboform, Windows zip handler...).
    Especially when SandboxIE is better (&free), DefenseWall is superior & stable and Returnil gives better protection and is also free.

    Yeh its a bit too buggy for me as well. Caused problems booting up and also froze up when attempting to disable or unload. Too bad, it seems like a good idea which just doesn't work (for me anyway :)).

    Works flawlessly for me and is great software. A lot similar to DefenseWall, SandBoxIE, GeSWall, ect. Works great with ThreatFire so far :D

    Hi, folks: Thought to give it a spin with DeepFreeze installed(thawed state), unfortunately, it caused BSOD, culprit is BZ's redlight.sys driver. No go for me. In the process of studying this driver by googling, found more shocking bad news: This redlight.sys has few vulnerability issues, namely in Dos and Overflow. And v.2.5 is included. Thought to pass along these info. Take care.

    Wow thanks for telling me Perman. Those are very serious vulnerabilities!

    I eventually uninstalled it due to its massive footprint and buggy code.

    I could not get firefox to work in BZ and while IE worked, it's CPU usage became abnormally high and it would occasionally stop responding.

    The customer support has also not replied to my support emails.

    Goodbye BZ...

    I'm looking for a free sandbox, similar to BZ which will automatically sandbox vulnerable apps like FF, WMP, MSN etc when they are run. What options do I have? o_O
