    I was just glancing around bitsdujour because of another thread and found DefenseWall on discount for $14.98 on May 29th. Wilders regulars know all about DefenseWall and it's great reputation and support. If you've been looking for a HIPS/sandbox program or even thinking about it then this is a good deal :thumb:.

    You'll have to buy it through the bitsdujour link. On the day of the promotion there should be a "Buy Now" button to press. I've bought a license through them before so it should be safe.

    For more info check out the bitsdujour FAQ's: http://www.bitsdujour.com/about/

    It's a great oppurtunity for me, and I guess also for everyone. :)

    Less than 48 hours until this deal is active. That should give those interested time to gather up a little money :).

    Just bought, and it works great alongside Outpost and Prevx :)
    Now I just have to decide which apps should be untrusted.

    You don't have to decide - DW has built-in Untrusted application list, from that list application will be automatically added.
    I know there are softwares which didn't add to this list for example any exotic IM, then you should add them manually to Untrusted application list in DW. Read the DefenseWall Help File it really helps.

    Ok, I will, thanks. Adobe Reader wasn't part of the untrusted list, so I added it. As regards Sandboxie, I untrusted it first, but then I had to trust it back, because I could no longer erase the content of my sandbox.

    Hi Brenden.
    Also make sure that "periodically check applications from built in list and set them as untrusted" box is ticked in the advanced/options settings.
    I dont use adobe reader but i would have thought that this would have been in the built in list.

    Adobe Acrobat Reader is not within built-in list as .pdf files are supported with untrusted apps ruleset. I.e. if you double-click on pdf file marked as untrusted, Reader will runs untrusted. Even more- trusted and untrusted instances of it are separated from each other.

    One single negative point since I installed DW : Sandboxie takes much longer to delete the content of my sandboxes. I don't know if that's normal.

    Brendan, I know people use both, but I don't think you need to.

    I just clear 'file and registry tracks'.

    DW5.jpg

    Make sure the web browser you use is untrusted.

    Then go to 'file and registry tracks', select all and delete (allow any files you want to keep).

    Then when you open your browser, (eg. mine is portable Google Chrome), setup the browser how you prefer.

    After using the browser, or any other 'untrusted' programs for that matter, go back to 'file and registry tracks', and delete all except for the ones relating to your browser settings.

    DW1.jpg

    Alternatively, 'rollback to' the initial browser setting to remove all the other files created after this file. Both are comparable to emptying your sandbox.

    DW2.jpg

    Hope I explained that ok, apologies if you already have an understanding of the program. I'm still learning it, found there are different ways for the same function.

    I clear 'file and registry tracks' after each session, but make sure I 'allow' any file (eg. PDFs) I want to keep. Or I can simply just select a file say on my desktop, right-click, and choose 'change status to trusted', and it won't be removed when I clear 'file and registry tracks'. :)

    I just checked with Opera, and you can go to 'file and registry tracks' and delete everything, and it will load without a problem, or changing any settings.

    The reason I delete certain files or 'rollback to', is for a portable program I use, and to show you how to select individual files you want to keep.

    If you're just using the installed firefox, opera, or IE, and you want to clear everything, just like with sandboxie, it's not a problem to clear all the files. No home page settings or anything are touched.

    DW111.jpg

    I just tested with Opera, and all good with deleting everything. It loaded back up to the same settings I always use. But if you want to keep files, or bookmarks, you can 'allow' these files (applying to the browser or similar program, say a messenger program), and delete anything else you don't need.

    Alternatively, you can run the browser/program as 'trusted' for a second, and save the bookmarks you want, just like with sandboxie (where people run an 'unsandboxed' browser). The program is quite versatile. :)

    A couple more notes:

    Just opened a few videos on youtube, and there were instantly the usual flash player settings/cookies lying around etc when I ran CCleaner.

    I deleted file and registry tracks, then ran CCleaner, and all traces were removed.

    But I'd still recommend using CCleaner with Sandboxie or DW, just for general removal of temporary data (particularly from using IE - flash cookies) that seems to always be left around.

    And by default, DefenseWall forces your removable drives as 'untrusted', so if you drag files on to your desktop (eg. from a USB stick), make sure you right-click and select 'change status to trusted'. Otherwise you won't be able to modify these files. :)
