    Well,you must be a fan of Sbie.;)
    Have you ever tried any POC of screen loggerr like AKLT3.0 or some ones developed by Zermana in sbie and under the screen monitor of CIS at the meantime. I'm afraid that you will fail some important items of the test.
    Have a try~:p

    Yes, no problem

    Without ThreatFire you should D+ configure at least with these settings

    can you explain what sandboxie does so uniquely that geswall doesnt? you can right click and run isolated with any program in geswall the same as sandboxie o_O o_O

    As a rule of thumb
    a) GeSwall protects everything in a seamless transparent way = files and applications, untill you change the status to trusted

    b) Sandboxie protects everything as long as it is sandboxed, moving it out of teh sandbox means you are unprotected.

    Unique selling point of GW over SBIE
    a) you don't need to bother what is trusted or untrusted, what is in or out of the sandbox so you have no accidental data loss (clearing a sandbox in SBIE)
    b) GW uses windows internals = faster than SBIE (less slowdown at initial browser startup)

    Uniqe selling point of SBIE over GW
    a) You can install programs in a sandbox, therefore trying out new aps without lowering protection
    b) You clear all contents of the sandbox, getting rid of all garbage collected at a (f.i.) a browsing session

    Both provide good and strong security, I think SBIE's uniqueness is more based on myth than facts. SBIE users forget that GW also has a virtualisation option with REDIRECT

    Kees, does GW run removable drives isolated, like DW runs them as Untrusted?

    You have to add these drives in the GW console. The GW support has some info on it, otherwise Aigle's post on conflicker worm on wilders

    Okay, thanks. Think I'll stick to DW if going sandboxed setup again - right now I don't feel I need to, so I save money and hassle. ;)

    I just aim that your opinion that "Sbie can do many things that GW can't", and nodoubt GW does better in anti-logger. Without hesitation, Sbie is a great safe application, but as previously said it appear not good against screen logger.
    Search AKLT with google~

    Yeah, I've considered the same thing, plus that my games got some weird "red" isolation, even if I didn't isolate them myself. This caused severe lagging in all the games I played, even non-heavy ones, so that's actually a reason I'd to uninstall the software (GW).

    not sure now as i am away from my home pc. Try the letter for your USB Drive( D or D:\ etc). Don't forget to reboot your pc. Never isolte your system drive C or you wil be in great trouble.
