    Maybe I'm looking at this the wrong way.
    I had some trouble installing Chrome on my Windows 7 Pro x64. The Red 'X' would re-size the browser window. To close Chrome I had to use Task Manager.
    So I uninstalled it twice and cleaned my system.
    The third time time I did a few reboots after the install and now it seems to be working properly.
    Now for the security part.
    I know not too much can happen from cookies in a well protected system. For years I've been using Sandboxie and Firefox. Nothing that I can remember got past SB.
    But when I close Chrome I'm left with a bunch of cookies that Hitman Pro finds.
    Am I looking at this the wrong way?
    Thanks.

    Did you set up to block 3rd party cookies? Or you can block all cookies except allowed. You can also set up to clean cookies when a browser is closed.

    The command switch -safe-plugins should make Java start sandboxed?

    I would think so. I didn't test that though.
