    Thank you for this....any idea if the registration code is time sensitive? I would like to take some time to test the program on the PC I have RollBack Rx installed on and then if I like it I would install it on my regular PC as well ----- and it probably will take me some time to get around to doing the testing.

    It is not that useful,if we know how to configure sandboxie.:) Sandboxie is more flexible.

    Normally a one year lisence. Sandboxie is a better deal or when you want a more user friendly program try SafeSpace (freeware, helas abondoned by developers)

    buffer zone is a good product for new users who start to virtual their working place.
    if u want more flexible software which offer much more options u better start learn Sandboxie :)

    cheers

    i noticed that its a version they are giving out(unlike anti-malware programs which just update the same program) so we have it forever but when they do update their product a newer version will be out so this one will be old, still a good offer.

    Are old sandbox versions useless though like how non-updated anti-malware programs are useless without updates?

    not exactly , u can use an old SB like 1 year back and still get a strong protection since this kinda products are unlike anti malware which depend on sig files :)

    How do the 2 programs differ (Sandboxie is more flexible?)? I have the free version of Sandboxie and am not to pleased with it. I have had numerous crashes of the sand-boxed program when its running that do not occur at all when the same program is not boxed. Also, when boxed the scroll wheel of my mouse does not work. I have to drag the scroll bar and even then its choppy.

    The scroll wheel on my mouse does work inside the sandbox but all mouse activity within the sandbox is slow and choppy. It's the main reason I don't use Sandboxie more often.

    I beta tested this product a few years ago and haven't run it since until now and it does feel lighter system wise. However, this version seems to be missing what i felt was it's most redeeming feature - "Bufferzone Desktop Mode" - the ability to enter and "EXIT" the virtual state "without" a reboot. It still needed some work as a few processes weren't removed until reboot but i tested it and it did work. In this mode, it virtualized all partitions. Don't know if it's still true but at the time, was the only product with this capability.

    No - disable 1 from loading at startup while you test the other.
