    I have Vista x64...and can no longer use Sandboxie.

    I have been looking for potential replacements:
    Comodo Diskshield
    Microsoft Steadystate
    Microsoft Virtual PC

    I loved the simplicity of Sandboxie, as I only used it for browsing. My needs are simple, and I wonder if the above programs are overkill. I just want to surf and have everything vanish when I'm done.
    I don't download anything, or go to risky areas, but I do like the protection offered by virtualization.

    Any ideas?

    Diskshield is fairly easy to use however last time i checked it was still in beta so use it with caution. Steadystate is ok if you can live with slower boot up times. There is another product called 'disk write copy' which is similar to returnil and is x64 compatible however its not free.
    Personally on my vista 64 system i browse using linux in a virtual machine. Its basically functions like sandboxie except it uses a heck of a lot more resources lol.
