    Hi

    Do you guys know what the Sandbox feature in Outpost do and how much of a compromised it is to my PC if I have it disabled?

    The reason I asked is this -

    After installing the lastest WOW patch, my PC started rebooting every 20 minutes or so while playing WOW.

    After searching the WOW forum, they believe it may have something to do with Outpost, and as a workaround, they suggest the Sandbox feature should be disabled. I tried the workaround last night, and sure enought, the reboot has stopped.

    I'm sure you can understand when I say I am not happy with this workaround as part of the firewall feature have been compromised.

    Apart from wanting to know what Sandbox does, should I uninstall OP and install a different firewall?

    Thanks
