    Hi

    I started using Sandboxie again and this program rocks. The only annoyance is the 5 sec nag screen and if I add something to firefox, I need to run it un-sandoxed. If I purchase Sandboxie, is this a one time fee? Also, is Sandboxie and Antivir Free a good combo?

    thanks
    Ice

    Yes it does!

    Yes, it's lifetime license and for all the PCs you own. Shame you lost the bits Du jour offer some week ago with 51% discount. (it's when i got it).


    I would think so! Probably the best scanner and a simple way to secure your surfing, that's good protection.

    I love Sandboxie but that initial delay of my browser opening is just so irritating. Other than that slight annoyance it's great. Also, tzuk is so on top of everything.

    Later...

    Looking at different sigs, I've noticed that some people run Online Armor along with Sandboxie. I was under the impression that Online Armor's RunSafer option provides the same type of protection as Sandboxie. Does anybody know the difference? Is there a hole that Sandboxie covers that RunSafer does not?

    I've used both together for a long time. Avira scans the contents of the sandbox with it's usual efficiency without any issues.

    Good solid protection I think.

    Cheers

    Online Armors Run Safer is a policy based process which denies applications certain privledges. Sandboxie is a virtualized container that isolates, and now also has priviledge reduction capabilities. different animals, both very good at what they do.

    It's trully great software. Been using it for a year.

    If you purchase it, Forced Programs and Forced Folders become available, which practically means you can say goodbye to CD/DVD/USB malware.

    thanks for the feedback. I connect out many different ways and I can sandbox all of them with little effort. Amazing stuff.

    Yes there was one threat I played with, that didn't require admin privileges, so Runsafer, Dropmyrights, etc wouldn't stop it. Sandboxie did.

    SandboxIE to me is in the same class as those single unique and satisfying apps that were well planned at the start, like FD-ISR (Classic)

    This one for me anyway is Legendary also. :thumb:

    Tzuk must eat, drink, and sleep with his excellent creation's blueprints and notes clipped to his sleeve, even in his PJ's :D

    LOL! Maybe he has interfaced his brain directly with his PC, so that he can debug sandboxie while sleeping. CyberTzuk! :ninja:

    Well, no problem with Avira Premium and Sandboxie at all.

    So i may assume that it will be same with Antivir Free.

    I can confirm that for XP Pro.

    I use Antivir (free) JUST FOR TESTINGS with SandboxIE on one of my multiple partitions and they coexist just fine.

    I wonder...

    Imagine: Spyware gains read-access to the password-file of my browser and sends the sensitive content.

    Would Sandboxie make a difference?

    Go to Sandboxie settings-->Restrictions-->Limit internet access only to your browsers and check the box that warns if something else tries. All programs in the sandbox that try to access the internet, will be stopped. (unless it somehow (!) manages to hijack the browser itself in order to phone out).

    Sandboxie already does too much for such a type of program. You can complement it with classical hips/behaviour blockers, etc.

    Sometimes i fear that people will press Tzuk to transform Sandboxie in some kind of "Sandbox-classical HIPS" monster, that will be eating cpu cycles all the time.

    I share that concern. Although tzuk isn't bashful about saying no.
