    Definitely, no! $40 is an initial price, price for year's updates will be $11.95 for a regular license.

    ok, so i already own a valid DW licence Ilya ;)

    so does that mean, it will cost me $12 a year?

    im in 2 minds, because at the moment, i use neither....

    but in the future, who knows what will happen, which is why the lifetime licence of sandboxie is currently appealing to me, for possible future use.

    Yes. (+VAT, since you are in UK).

    Lifetime is gooooood! You can't argue about that. :D It gives you the feeling that even if you 're not currently running it, you 're not wasting up time from your time limited license.

    Simple- if you'll make your mind to update, just put that money into my pocket and update. It doesn't mean you have to pay right after your initial license expired. I'm quite liberal with licensing. :)

    Maybe, it's good for customers, but not for security tool developer. As they are highly complex, we always need cash flow in order to keep the product always up to date, working with new Windows versions, problem issues and improvements. You don't expect that the piece of bred you just eat wil be extended for free, doesn't it?

    That's nice to know! :thumb:

    Mine is used even less. Since i bought it, i 've been changing setups twice a week. Now i try to stick with this one for a while just in order to take the habbit of not changing. :D

    Defensewall price is acceptable to me considering Some AntiVirus cost that or more and IMO do not provide the level of protection that DW does.Also considering what I pay for High speed internent Access pr year,whats 10.20 or 40 a yr for a strong security product,But a lifetime license is sweet.

    As far as I know, the license is lifetime BUT again there is an annual update fee. Sandboxie, compared to DW and GW is a ONE-off fee; no annual updates.

    I know and i understand. Actually Defensewall's renewal fee is reasonable. I was speaking in general. Lifetime licenses works in the long run only if there is a stable flow of new buyers and in advanced security applications that aren't wide known, this isn't easy.

    Like you said, it's good for customers, i am a customer. :D I don't expect all companies to give lifetime licenses. But those who do, have my preference. :D It's not that i force them to adopt the lifetime license model.

    Well, yes, like most firewalls, have lifetime license. It's that you just can't update it after the 1 year. So it's not what i call lifetime. Sandboxie does even more than one-off fee. It allows the same license to all the computers of the same owner. So if you have a desktop and a laptop, you can use the same Sandboxie license. Now how does Tzuk manage to live on with offers like that, i really don't know...

    because as customers, we dont care from the business side.

    we will price-match, compare products and features, compare and question everything, until we get what we want. :p

    Definitely logical and unquestionable. However, have you ever considered making lifetime licenses available on special occasions (one or two days per year) ?

    Lol, maybe in the future he will ... who knows. I had over a year left with OFP when I purchased my OSS lifetime license in late december.

    To stay on-topic, of course, I'm going to grab this deal this Thursday :cool:

    Hi, all

    To stay above the water line and to be very competitive are the foremost principles these days for any venture.

    I would consult some marketing minds ( those who are complete outsiders, no any cyber experiences), to seek their views.

    You may get a fresh inputs, and make your jaws dropped. That's why mega corporations often parachute fresh faces to fill the CEO positions.

    Times are much different than those golden days. Flexibility in policy making is one of the essentials to stay afloat.

    And NEVER say NO; at least you can ENTERTAIN the idea. eh?

    What is SBIE's return policy? And, does the paid version have a 30 day trial period? :)

    I would like to thank the maker of Sandboxie, Ronen Tzur (I think that's how you spell it), and Bits du Jour for making this excellent software available at such a great low price.
    I have been using sandboxie for quite some time now and was just too cheap to register it. Tomorrow I will. I'm still cheap though. LOL

    Me too:)
    When i bought it 2 years ago it was 15$ without discount.I didn't know what it was about but sounded interesting and i was really desperate to find something reliable against malware becouse i had many PC infections.
    Today considering what this app can do,if all it's features are used and not only against malware,but in keeping the registry untouched while still able to perform many advanced tasks,Installing Games,Video editing etc, even 30$ or whatever the price is now is too little ImO
