    Both protect the system pretty good. Safespace uses more space and memory than Sandboxie. Safespace is free and offers excellent keylogger protection and a fancy GUI.

    I put SafeSapace back on. The IE7 earch engine issue is fixed. It really is better now that I know how to use it better. Keeper? Hmmm;)

    How does Safespace offer excellent keylogger protection? If you have your browser isolated and there's a keylogger on your machine, it can't log keystrokes such as logins etc.?

    Once could be a long time ago When I first tried Sandboxie, it wouldn't run on my older machines. Now....

    Safespace is a good developing app. Just way bigger.

    They need to come up with Safespace lite. Less graphics, memory, hard drive space, etc. Keep the basics and the keylogger protection, but w/out the fancy gui.

    My machine is 4+ years old and it takes a little while to load up and the circular icon gets a little annoying when I last tried it.

    So, what's the consensus here?
    Except for keylogger protection, does Sandboxie and SafeSpace offer similarly strong protection?

    SBIE is time-tested and SS is still evolving. ATM SBIE is better than SS except mainly for keylogger protection.

    There never has been, or will be, a concenus here. Only you can decide by trying both.;)

    @trjam: yeah, sorry. wrong word to use in a forum. just ignore the first part of that post. :)

    except for SS providing keylogger protection and SBIE much lighter, in what other respects is SBIE better than SS?

    Hello, I am not a regular user of SBIE, but IMO:

    1- SBIE, more users, more bugs reported and fixed as a result
    2- More tested against malware
    3- Less slow down
    4- Less resource usage
    5- Much smoother than SS
    6- Easier to browse and recover ur sandboxed files

    May be there are still more....
    Best way is to use on ur system and then see what u like. U can,t be sure otherwise.

    I'm actually a SBIE user.
    Am just curious about SS' level of protection compared to SBIE which is why I asked considering that the former is totally free.

    I tried SS briefly and it seems very solid in protection despite the fact that it,s new. I was really impressed.

    The best experience is the own experience. Try the Software on your own and make the decision.

    I have running SS on my machine, its very stable, and I feel good with it.

    I'm glad of the future improvements, too, but that's no Point to let it not run on my machine at this time.

    I know, thanks! :) But that is one of the reasons why we have forums such as this one. In Wilders, members like to share their experiences with security programs and it's very much appreciated. It's not a problem for me to install and use SS instead of SBIE but it's not just a question of whether it is stable or not but also about the kind of protection it can give compared to SBIE. I am not a malware tester so I will not be in a position to know this aspect, which is why I asked.

    Hi, this thread may help a bit. It seems Sbie can be simply tightened up to help protect against keyloggers. The thread also has interesting testimonies LOL.

    innerpeace is on-target and factual.

    I just being a recent new recipient of SandboxIE am awe struck at it's protection. I been testing it today and really just going thru paces because when sandboxed, even my partition drives are not allowed access when configured closedfolderpath= D:\ etc. and that's exciting after i have had a not so recent experience when of all things a security app jumped into my partitions that stored valuable updated FD-ISR archives and corrupted them while trying to build it's database. I reserve comment ATM on the program that was the dirst culprit of this frustration since they since seem to have corrected things with an upgrade/update, but if at the time i had SandboxIE closing off access to it, nothing like that could have penetrated into it.
