    Got my new laptop with w7 x64

    Sandboxie is not working! I feel nude and dirty without Sandboxie every time I browse the internet.

    KIS Safe Run won't run.

    Any suggestion re: sandboxie equivalent that will run x64

    Have you tried the Sandboxie beta that has x64 support?

    I would have thought that the Sandboxie x64 beta in conjunction with Shadow Defender (or Returnil), and Prevx with SafeOnline, would have provided more than enough browser security. It's unlikely that you would encounter malware that would penetrate all three layers. In fact, any two out of the three would probably be enough, although I use all three just to be on the safe side.

    Run VMWare Player and use a virtual machine or use another VM program that allows snapshots.

    Tzuk has the beta of Sandboxie up to version .18 and moving along fairly fast. So say what you want to about 64 bit, but I dont think he will be satisfied until he gets the 64 bit version able to heep you as safe as the 32 bit one. He didnt start this project to go 3/4 the way and stop.

    Tzuk is planning on putting the x64 support into the next release, I believe, after hammering out the beta issues. However, he's already said that x64 support will NEVER be as good as x86 support.

    I'm probably getting the details wrong here, but I believe that there's no way to prevent nasties in the sandbox from reaching some services outside of the sandbox. That's why the x64 version has 'Drop rights' enabled by default. You can see his explanation (better than mine) here.

    As for why he's doing it even though it'll never be as solid as the x86 version, I believe he said something about putting the x64 version out there because it's absence was tarnishing the brand.

    Thats exactly why I recommended running a VM with Windows XP or another flavor of Windows. Offers the same thing, but allows snap shots in some of the VM programs.

    Its an independent program, it has no problems with Rollback Rx or other AV.
    But note that ForceField only works sandboxes IE and FF. Unlike Sandboxie which can be used for any program. On the good side, its pretty stable and works without any kinks on x64.

    If Sandboxie x64 beta doesn't work out for you and you need sandboxed browsing ASAP, then go for ZoneAlarm FF. Else stick to Sandboxie x64 beta or wait for GesWall 3.0 (whenever its released).

    Am I correct in assuming that no existing programs provide Kernel-level protection on x64 systems?

    Doesn't that mean that all of these sandboxing programs that claim to afford protection actually don't? It's probably different for the virtual machine route, of course.

    .
    It's a matter of degree. This has been addressed in the recent SandboxIE threads. You are correct that the kernel can't be accessed/protected the same way due to Patchguard.
