    You have more than enough real time protection.
    GeSWall uses the Microsoft Security Framework and it doesn´t create a full virtual machine.
    Applications that are threat gates (broswers, IM, mail clients, P2P, removable drives, etc) run in a isolation layer.
    More.

    I found this study very informative. Be informed that newer versions of SandBoxie released since this article was written have fixed the flaw which resulted in the "X" under "Personal information isolated." Consequently, there should now be a check mark in place of the X. I know this because I subscribe to Gizmo's newsletter, which is a great source of information and software suggestions.
