    Hi there,

    I going to try GeSWall but I'm wondering about the settings of script, active x and cookies. I usually block these things easily with my Kerio 4 firewall. So here is my question:
    Would it be wise to block the above even running GeSWall only to make sure and be safeo_O or can I surf without hesitation?
    Thanks for your opinion.

    i've been using geswall for a while now, purposely going to the most dangerous sites on the internet trying to get infected with something. so far nothing. i've downloaded and allowed to execute OS (and MBR) killing viruses like killdisk, keyloggers, xpkiller, etc... and geswall hasn't failed me yet. you can do whatever you want to with your script/active x/cookie settings, as long as the application is isolated (ie protected by geswall) you are good.

    ps the thing to remember about geswall is that it's not a firewall, it falls into the sandbox/virtualization category.

    Hi! GeSwall has snothing to do with cookies so u must block them as u like. However Sripts and actice X will cause no harm to the OS due to GeSWall. However I will suggest to keep them blocked/ disabled as I suspect( not sure) they can still work somewhat at browser level( privacy cencerns) though they can,t touch ur OS.

    Ur best place to ask this Q is their official forums.

    Hi,

    GesWall does neutralises against active-x programs etc. When my son used only GesWall with the only registry protection comming from CyberHawk free, I can not recall he evered faced malware gotten through via registry or webbrowser settings changed.

    Regard K
