    Are you using just Sandboxie?

    Your avatar inspired me to change mine to MACS0647-JD, a lensed galaxy about as far back as we can see.

    With Sandboxie I'd need at least an on-demand scanner, some internet filters, and an imaging program. But probably more for a sense of security than actually needed. On my computer nothing has gotten by Sandboxie yet.

    My desktop is a recent shot of an impact area on Mars taken from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter:

    I really get what u mean. I tend to use layered protection as well.
    but sometimes I just like going (almost) naked and run wild :D

    currently Webroot!

    when my license runs out I will probably go back to Appguard.

    I would never use only one, but if I was forced to then I would have to say AppGuard.

    If I had to go with one and only one, I'd say Qupzilla (the browser). Why?
    - Applications are always the first line of defense, browsers more than anything else
    - Webkit has a cleaner code base than Gecko, from what I've seen
    - Built in content filtering and cookie management
    - Can toggle JS, plugins, images, etc.
    - Runs and is quite stable on most platforms
    - Renders most pages without issues
    - Hardly anyone uses it! :)

    Not digitally signed. :( If it was I'd test it!
     
  17. Does it uses low right containment to protect medium level world in Windows?

    No, though you could probably do that with the portable version easily enough using icalcs or such. Very good point though, Windows has standardized MAC and people should use it if possible.

    Edit: actually, recalling how insanely strong the Chrome sandbox is on Windows, this does seem like a bad suggestion for anyone other than Linux users doesn't it...

    Just to remind you that new EIS will be released with no HIPS.

    Does anyone has experience with https://www.whitehatsec.com/aviator/ (because the idea of browser designed for more privacy like Qupzilla is appealing)

    I don't use it now because its incompatible with AXTM but it would be shadow defender.

    You´re kidding me right? A browser is not a security app, no matter how secure it is. Which app would you really use? :)

    99,99% malware gets into the computer through the browser, if you open emails in the browser, so the browser is pretty much the first line of defense.
    I rely on the browser as well, otherwise I would not "risk" using no realtime security sfotware. So in a manner of speaking, it is a security application.
    My browser also scans all downloads with Kaspersky, so it is actually AV too, not to mention URL filtering not just by the browser, also by the DNS.
