    After a few days on the computer, I'm liking the combination of Webroot SecureAnywhere Essentials and Sandboxie.

    What are Microsoft going to do that causes experimental mode not to function for Sandboxie?

    I assume MS meant Microsoft.

    According to Tzuk at Sandboxie, a kernel patch from MS may cause sandboxie to BSOD.

    I've been using Sandboxie Experimental since it was released, seems like more than 6 months ago. Glad to have the extra protection on my 7 x64 machine. If a Windows update interferes with it, I'll uncheck Experimental, or whatever other fix is required.

    Me too, it was actually part of 3.56 released in June 11 and I was using the first betas which started in early April 11 so full year now with no issues for me.

    IMO it is far from stupid to have had extra protection for that time. If MS patch the 'fix' Tzuk has implemented then boot into safe mode disable EP - job done. Lets hope its never required though :)

    Cheers

    All the security measures I take, can be undertaken on an x86 machine.

    - User Account
    - DEP/SEHOP
    - Comodo Firewall with Defense+
    - Avast! Anti-Virus
    - Malwarebytes Pro
    - Sandboxie (all internet-facing programs except firewall and AV running in sandbox)
    - Whatever browser strikes my fancy at the moment + Adblock + the equivalent script protection

    It's not all that resource intensive. All together, I think it's like 50MB or less of RAM (excluding the browser)
