It says it has HIPS. But is it any good?
it is very good at blocking everything which as a database of known good program along with a database of OS files that are good.
Does it take up a lot of RAM and resources and slows down PC operations and playing online games etc?
And does the FREEWARE version have HIPS?
yes the free version does have hips and is disabled by default.
its uses about 8mb of ram.
I installed it, but I had to UNINSTALL it because for some reason when Spyware Terminator is installed, Sandboxie won't load properly. But once I removed Spyware Terminator, Sandboxie worked perfectly again.
So that's a big thumbs down from me for Spyware Terminator
u could have excluded both products from each other
I looked around google and apparently this Sandboxie + ST has been an issue for years, yet obviously ST haven't bothered fixing it!
The reason I want ST is to it can protect me whilst using Sandboxie and browsing the web..so excluding it from each other defeats the purpose of having ST in the first place, right?
If ur looking for a hips program den comodo hips maybe the best bet
and i didnt understant ur second line ... if u r using sandboxie den u r already protected while browsing the net .. why/how u need st to protect while browsing net ?
Because Sandboxie has been letting files like .exe and .jog and .flv files to be saved into my IE temp folder..probably drive by downloads. I have lost confidence in Sandboxie..and as SB logo says, "TRUST NO PROGRAM" and that includes "DO NOT TRUST SANDBOXIE"
I have sandboxie for a while but still am no expert .. u can ask in this thread for any sandboxie related query
or the sandboxie forum itself , or sum1 will answer here
And when u say it lets file save in ur temp folder they must still be sandboxed if u downloaded them through a sandboxed browser and if yes than they cant do any harm to ur pc even if they get downloaded or even if they are run
ST has looking into fixing it but havnt had any success at fixing it. even the Dev of SB has has issue of what would be the issue.
Are you serious or are you joking around?
Hey, hur mor du?
I am 100% serious! The SB logo says, "TRUST NO PROGRAM", which includes SB itself...that's why I never trust SB completely either as it has let me down a few times now, by allowing driveby downloads and some .exe and .jpg and .flv files to be saved OUTSIDE the SB.
It was lucky Hitman Pro alerted me of the infected files in the IE Temp folder.
So u can keep on scanning stuff after downloading with HMP .. hillarious !
Mozart did you do a full system scan with ST and see if you could allow Sandboxie into the trusted programs list?
I did a full scan, but didn't see any option about that. Suffice to say, I have removed ST because I read on google that heaps of people have trouble running SB after installed ST.
man, that's funny, then why bother trusting ST?
As long as you have Sandboxie properly configured you should be safe.
