    i just installed geswall free version and whenever i right-click my web browser icon to run web browsing isolated nothing happens? I tried this with other programs to like ccleaner and nothing happens. What do i need to do to make geswall work

    you don't have to do anything.
    your browser is automatically isolated.

    you should see the colored bar at the top of the page as well as the little squared G on top.
    it should look like the image in the link below.
    except i changed mine to purple. :)

    can't you get it to work by right-clicking and choosing "Run Isolated"?

    if not, right click and try "Application Wizard".

    either open your browser up and the little box to isolate will show up in your tray, or reboot, then try again.

    i have Pro and it doesn't support Iron "out of the box" either.

    that's why i recommended the OP to try the Application Wizard.

    that sucks that it doesnt have support for iron. The application wizard doesnt work too maybe it only works on pro

    Yup Geswall sandbox's your browser,but when you done downloading a file / program,and you determine it's clean to install,you right click it as trusted.

    no.

    when you close the browser it's all taken care of.

    you can always check the Untrusted files section but i would leave it alone unless you have been attacked.

    Geswall is truly a "set and forget" application.
    which is why i use it. :thumb:

    and it does work with the new IE9!

    Nope.

    The only thing I personally do after I'm done browsing,is open up CCleaner and delete all the garbage thats accumulated through the day and log off :D

    this program seem's good even if i dont use it all of the time. Whats the point of labeling something trusted if it operates the same way. Why not just be really safe and leave most things untrusted?

    Geswall is a great product. I loved that fact that I could download something and then run it untrusted. It was fun watching the malware trying to write registry values. Then all you do is hit terminate. Ah good times.
