    So far, on my XP SP3 system Webroot and Sandboxie seem to coexist very well.

    I am able to verify that the AV detects potential bad sites, and also detects and quarantines the Eicar test file download before the file is recovered via Sandboxie to the download folder.

    My question is whether Identity Shield is functional within a Firefox browser supervised by Sandboxie? (I do show the padlock.)

    I only ask because I haven't come across a recent or definitive answer.

    If they aren't compatible then I suppose it would make more sense to conduct financial transactions outside of a Sandboxie supervised browser.

    Any info appreciated. :thumb:

    Last I checked (which was probably about ~2 months ago), WSA was fully functional within Sandboxie, so I believe you should still be fine.

    Thanks, Joe. That's great news because the combination of protection afforded by these two apps would be very tough to beat, imho.

    Makes my day to hear this. :thumb:
