    I use NOD32 as my AV. I have read that if you run your browser in a sandbox, NOD32's IMON (internet monitor) becomes innefective.

    So are you safer surfing with IMON clicking on all cylinders or with the browsers in a sandbox?

    Or have I possibly misunderstood what I have read?

    NOD is no different than the other top tier AV's, that is 'they all still miss things'. So running your browsers, IM's, etc in a sandbox would be an advantage to you than not doing so. KAV's web av worked fine this way, why not NOD's?.

    The sandbox would be safer, it can be emptied and the AV still has resident protection.

    Avast WebShield works in sandboxie, why wouldn't NOD32 IMON ?

    Quote from Eset's Dec15 blog entry:

    Virtualization technologies, such as SandBoxIE are a great compliment to Anti-virus solutions.

    Neither stop everything, but virtualization can protect sensitive data, and if something bad was installed it will be gone when I empty the sandbox.
