    As expressed earlier in other post I´m trying Defensewall with Sandboxie already installed...They seems to work together without conflicts...Overkill or not? Pros or cons?
    What could the gaining in this combo be?

    Hello,
    Sounds like an overkill to me...

    Osip,

    When you are familiar with Sandboxie, Sandboxie is sufficient. DefenseWall is great when there are also others (security novice) on the PC and you want yor PC quitely protected (when you are not around).

    Sounds overkill to me aswell. I would just choose one of them. Both are excellent programs and can give good protection. I tried both before i made my decision. I went with Defensewall. It was easier for me to use. Also i had few problems with Sandboxie. It wouldnt start with my browser. You also have returnil aswell so you ae well covered.

    Tnx for that feedback, guy´s...This was a test from my side and in general you confirmed my own view...The reason behind this was from a review:
    Both are indeeed excellent and I wish both vendors all the best...

    Hi, Kees1958: I am very interested in your experience--DefenseWall can protect your PC quietly when you are not around. Can you tell more?

    I guess he means that DefenseWall is already from the start configured with "untrusted/trusted" so the defence is there no matter of user...Sboxie needs a little more (but very easy,not too complicated), if registered the administrator can configure it to all, if not you have to be aware how to open the sandbox...

    cheers...

    Hi, Osip: Thanks for your input. Now I understand what Kees1958 has said; when your pc is well configured w/DefenseWall, others can not tamper box while you are not around.
