    Their new 3.41 version released today is not x64 compatible as far as I know (did not find the changelog btw), even if they strongly promised in the past that this will be available for 2010. But this promo is going on until Dec 31, so maybe we can hope for another release before that date ends...

    From here, I can't see this promotion on their site as of yet but the download link is already working:
    http://www.trustware.com/uploads/download_files/BufferZoneProFree.msi

    Can we install it at any futur date? Any registration needed?

    According to my tests in VM, registration is optional.

    I never heard of BufferZone before, but because it is free, I thought I would try it in a virtual machine. My conclusion: be careful with BufferZone.

    I installed BufferZone and ran IE in the buffer and downloaded Cpu-Z and installed it with the Ask toolbar (also executed in the buffer). The toolbar showed up in the buffered IE as expected, BUT it also showed up when I unloaded the program and ran IE regularly. The Ask toolbar got installed on the real system.

    To make sure I wasn't imagining things, I tried the same steps with Sandboxie. The Ask toolbar existed inside the sandbox, but did not exist when running IE regularly.

    Thanks for this info.

    And does this license ends by december 2011?

    My use for BufferZone would be to replace DefenseWall on my 7x64 system, but I would much happier to see Ilya find a satisfying anough patchguard workaround...

    Nice share here. Have not used BufferZone yet. Have been stuck with Sandboxie/GesWall for ages. Can someone share some insights as to, say:

    - ease of use
    - differences (in comparison to SBIE paid/GesWall paid.since this is a promo for Pro usage)
    - observations perhaps..

    Cheers!

    My advice before coming to conclusions is to get to know how to use it.

    Tried the same and Ask was installed but after emptying BZ Ask seemed to be gone.

    Unloading BZ doesn't delete changes. Bottom left of the GUI - Empty Bufferzone and select all three options.

    To anyone familiar with both applications, what are the primary differences between BufferZone Pro and GesWall ?

    Thanks waters.

    I first used Bufferzone in May of this year.
    It's obvious some thought went into it and it does provide some nice features, but for me, I see no real advantage versus Sandboxie combined with a good rollback application or just running GesWall.

    Perhaps I'm missing something.

    Still, free is nice and I've told several friends about the giveaway.
    Thanks Trustware.

    I used BZ free for months, a few months ago. Frankly, I kept it on my computer longer than any other security software I've ever used. Nothing ever got through bufferzone.

    I had/have a rule of thumb. I empty the buffer whenever I closed my browser, just like I do with Sandboxie.

    Now, with this opportunity to have the Pro version, I'm back with bufferzone again. I liked it, still like it and am very appreciative of Trustware for providing this opportunity to have a great security program. With a decent antivirus, either real time or on demand (MBAM and Hitman Pro) I feel pretty secure.
