    Between the two of those I can't imagine anything will be touching your system.

    I use both extensively and 'out of the box' neither prevent infection all that well. SD will remove it on reboot, SBIE will restrict it while running and can if the right option is chosen remove it on closing the sandbox.

    If its a keylogger you get and bank under both of these during the same session you may be in trouble.

    Now SBIE with start/run & internet restrictions is another matter, very safe. You have to realise though if you let something out of the sandbox even with SD it will run and infect, just be gone at the next reboot.

    Both or either with some kind of default deny policy based software like Appgaurd or even just srp are great though.

    Cheers

    Well I am using sandboxie with some customisations like automatic delete file restrictions,leader program and internet access restrictions.
    Also I am running Key scrambler.
    And shadow defender too but with shadow defender I face a problem that I have to reboot the windows before entering shadow mode after some time of reboot it hangs while I try to enter the shadow mode.
    I am running Windows 7 and microsoft security essentials

    might be slightly ot, but is there a way to force sandboxie to not let the contents of the clipboard created during a sandboxie session be copied to actual clipboard? cuz even though you copy something to clipboard w/in a sandboxed app, the content gets copied to actual system clipboard. and that's not good at all.
    thanks in adv.
    p.s.: that may not be the case w/ the latest version, cuz i used to use sandboxie long time ago. but just wanted to make sure whether it's been fixed in current version.

    I'm confused, you need to reboot to enter Shadowmode?

    You're good, just need a drive imaging program, plus maybe internet safety checker (for scams) and software update monitor.
