    I am thinking about installing Online Armor (Trial) and Sandboxie on one of my PC's (Eventually on all 3 PC's if things work out). Please answer the following questions:

    1. From your experience does Sandboxie work OK with Online Armor (Paid)?
    2. If you wanted to run OA with "Run Safer (Limited User)" what program would I select for Run Safer?: Sandboxed Web Browser, Sandboxie, Both
    3. Will Sandboxie work OK if you use Run Safer on it?

    The eventual setup that I am targeting for my PC's is:

    Resident:
    NOD32
    MS Windows Defender

    HIPS & Firewall:
    Online Armor (Paid)
    DSL/Cable Router with SPI

    Sandboxing:
    Sandboxie (Paid)

    On Demand Scans:
    SuperAntiSpyware Free
    Malwarebytes AntiMalware
    Spybot S&D (For Immunization Only)
    SpywareBlaster

    Hi Thekid7

    Sandboxie and Online Armor paid play just fine for me. As to Run Safer, I select, my browsers, windows media player, and Outlook. I also run the browsers and Outlook in Sandboxie.

    You wouldn't want to run Sandboxie under Run Safer. First no need, and 2nd, it might interfere with it.

    Actually all I run is Sandboxie, OA paid, and SSM for backup. Thats it for me for security software.

    You'll probably be okay with that set-up. From what I hear, most people encounter no problems. I am the exception that proves the rule, however. When running Sandboxie & OA I kept getting a sluggish computer -- followed, after several minutes, by broken connections. When I disabled OA, the problem disappeared.

    I don't use OA, but if Run Safer does the same as Drop My Rights or LUA,
    then I have had absolutely no problems running Sandboxie. I am probably
    going overboard as I also have Returnil switched on - so in my case, DMR (or
    LUA), Sandboxie and Returnil all activated whilst connected.
