    Cool, I'm interested in seeing how the x64 version fairs against malware, considering the protection limits imposed on the product because of PatchGuard.

    So it seems BZ will beat GeSWall and Defensewall to a 64-bit version. BZ does work like those doesn't it?

    Yeah somewhat. geswall is a policy restriction software. Defensewall is a policy restriction and light virtualization. Bufferzone is a sandboxing and some virtualization.

    I see BZ as a mixture between Sandboxie s virtualization and Defense
    Wall policy restrictions. Surfing sandboxed is like surfing in the Buffer
    Zone and as you can delete the sandbox, the Buffer Zone can also
    be deleted. Surfing seems, to me, more like SBIE than DW.
    The way downloaded files are handled, I feel, its more like DW than
    SBIE. On BZ you can change the policy that will handle those files.
    The status of DL files can be changed like in DW.
    I see all three programs trying to achieve the same(sandboxing)
    but each doing it their own way.

    They should hurry this up.
    I'm turning purple. Can't hold on much longer.

    Seriously, I used BZ a few years ago and liked it. I look forward to this testing.

    I'm agree with elam too.
    Bufferzone is an hybrid between DW and sandboxie. But the default configuration need to be changed because signed programs are installed out and it could be dangerous.

    Oh yes, if I was using BZ, definitely change that by unticking to
    trust digitally signed executables.

    Does Bufferzone protect you from malware that is trying to take your usernames/passwords that are stored in your browser?

    Signed up today. Wonder how long it will take... Does anyone know if the protection rate is 100% like DefenseWall and GeSWall?

    Hi Brandonn, just my opinion. If there was no SBIE, I would be using
    DefenseWall. I know DW does what its supposed to do.

    Bufferzone offers a really good (perhaps not the best) protection but you need to change the policy rules.

    There's a thread somewhere here. Naturally, I can't find it. Kees posted the information on how to set up BZ.

    I looked at the default settings and made several changes when I began using BZ months ago. I found his recommendations and I was pretty close to what he recommended. Set up his way, I don't hesitate to say that BZ is every bit as solid as Sandboxie or DW. Left to default install, I'm not as sure.

    In the policy rules you need to change the installation authorisation : by default signed programs are allow to install out, the matter is here. You need to increase the protection and bufferzone will ask you where you want to do the installation (in or out).
    Perhaps there's others parameters i don't know.
    If you can find this topic it would be nice :)
