    I think it would be a good idea to terminate the sandbox programs OFTEN. Then reopen a fresh sandbox. I do that. I use Opera without addons, and use Zemana antikeylogger.

    Oh I don't use NS anymore. It's a hassle.

    You're right it's too much at stake. No need to take chances. I personally think you're at more risk from infections at bank's own computers. And online banking can be carried out without worries in a sandboxed browser without any add-on. ;)

    Well I just wanted to give the trial a whirl. It's light but not that light. The toolbar makes browsing slightly slower. Web filtering and stuffs you know. I'll try another AV soon.:)

    I've added an additional security line in my setup: RunInsideLimitedJob (by Didier Stevens).

    I've never played with it, so... it was just about time. It's raining pots here and I got bored. :D I can't even walk/run with my pack of dogs. :'(

    Looks good Zitch. I don't know if you know but you can set the sandbox to delete on closing, that way when you close Opera or the last program running in the sandbox, the sandbox contents gets deleted automatically. That way you don't need to manually Terminate programs and/or Delete contents.

    http://www.sandboxie.com/index.php?DeleteSettings#invocation

    On default settings, sandbox contents is not deleted and it has to be done manually. If you want to get it done automatically, tick the first box. I delete my sandbox every time I close my browser or whatever program I am running sandboxed. I delete contents very often.

    In case you are wondering what the second box is for, you put a tick on it if you like to install a program in a sandbox and keep it for a while, that way the program that you installed sandboxed, don't get deleted when you close the sandbox.

    Bo

    I can feel an impact on the AV so I disabled it.
    I put HIPS on training mode and later Paranoid mode :)
    and also Sandbox on restricted so it will be super light just HIPS+Sandbox

    what difference are you experiencing when you switched from Online Armor to Comodo?
    in terms of quiteness, lightness and protection levels?
