    Hi,

    I'm new to woth WSF and SBIE.

    I like the idea of how SBIE can protect your PC.

    However, I have no idea on how to configure the setting.

    I'm just using it with default setting, using IE in a sandboxed environment.

    But I think that knowing how to use it better (knowing how to configure the setting)

    will provide better security.

    Is there any learnin thread for SBIE on how to configure the setting?

    I could be wrong, but I think some of the info* in the preceding links may be a bit beyond this OP's skill level. That's not a negative reflection on the OP; frankly much in those posts are over my head as well.

    I familiarized myself with the Sandbox Settings section and used those features to (a) restrict internet access to only Internet Explorer (b) block all access to My Documents, and (c) automatically delete the sandbox contents.


    ( * I'm referring to custom configurations of the Sandboxie's .ini settings.)

    I'm seeking for something a little more exhaustive... As weird as it may sound.

    dont worry default settings in SBIE cover pretty much anything bad outside on the web.

    to get vice versa communication thru sandboxie to a bare minimum,set in SBIE settings to only your browser and mail program to connect and delete everytime the content after shut down SBIE,if so your pretty well protected.
