BIS 13Cents version....lol
Zitch, terminating programs stops programs that are running but it doesn't delete the sandbox. To clean the sandbox, the sandbox has to be deleted.
Just running Sandboxie free and Windows FW...
Its nice Bo elam and must be light as heck too
but only adequate if all you do is surfing and moderate usage
No, its not adequate, actually it is great. By the way, I surf all kind of sites, I don't care what site it is, if I want to go there, I go.
Why it works? Its very simple. I never stop using Sandboxie. Whatever I download, it always run sandboxed. No exceptions.
New installs. That could be a problem but not for me because I don't install new programs in my computer. I haven't installed anything new in my PC in over two years with the only exception being Shadow Defender to replace TimeFreeze. If I want to try a new program or run a scan, I do it under SD as I did before under TF.
- Windows 7 64 bit
- Windows Firewall with advanced security - locked down, outbound blocked
- EMET 100% maxed on all internet facing apps
- Windows Image + dvd backups
- LUA + parental controls (restrict what can run in LUA)
- Changed: MSE to Avast 8 beta, mainly because both don't hinder performance where I can tell on my new machines (basic use here no gaming) and Avast 8 includes an updater so I can ditch sumo (keep windows as lean as possible)
- On demand - hitman pro and CCE
- Comodo dragon browser with a few of security/privacy add ons
- IE10 - protected mode on
Considering: Sandboxie paid, time freeze, CIS
Agreed, although I would call it far, far better than adequate. I'd be willing to bet that even if Sandboxie was taken out of the picture, careful use of NoScript would afford near 100% security.
added Sandboxie lifetime to my setup (thanks to a good friend)
and learning to use NVT exe radar pro
i want to try sandboxie again
I do that, too ! I might be an old fart, but momma didn't raise no dummies
The setup ive really settled on is whats in my sig but to clarify a bit
Comodo Internet Security 6, Hueristics on High, Cloud lookup is on. Hips is "on" so I see the alerts
On demand is Hitman Pro and MBAM as well as MBAR
Protection for my browser (Google Chrome) is Panda URL filter since Comodo doesnt have one as well as Bitdefender trafficlight browser addon and WOT and Ad-block
the computer runs light as a feather and the setup I have so far is rock solid
I know that's true. I tell you how I know. I used SBIE and NS for about the same amount of time, four years.
In all that time, I only seen SBIE give me one message about something strange attempting to run while surfing. I credit that to NoScript blocking all the bad stuff displayed in webpages that malware uses to hide and infect.
wooo SandB0xie is different from the last time i tried it it looks better and it feels good to run it again i have my documents directory sandbox,now i will run my usb sandbox
Yup. I visit maybe 2 dozen of known to me safe websites for which NS is disabled. For those rare occasions that I actually do search for something, I never disable NS. Since then I have ditched all of my security software except for MBAM Pro file system protection. Firefox might be slow but nothing beats NS.
I've done a lot of changing in the last couple of months, changed between this and that while balancing security and performance. My current setup is still being looked at, but so far I'm working with the following:
Firefox with NoScript and Https Everywhere extensions and ABP for dealing with ads.
Avast 8 Free Beta
EMET 3.5 with HungryMan's XML file, ASLR Always On
That's actually it. I'm debating free or paid Sandboxie, but I'm not sure yet. I don't mind layers and in fact believe in them, but too many layers end up having the opposite effect at times, so I'm taking things easy and seeing how it goes for a couple of weeks.
this is the best combo i find for now:emsisoft antimalware+Online Armor Premium+EXE Radar Pro
My best setup to date - Brand spanking New Mid 2012 Macbook Pro i7 2.9 GHz 8 Gigs DDR3 750 HDD 5400rpm HD4000 graphics 512 MB built in security. I been buying a lot of new toys lately including the one in my sig. Now I will test out my new canon T4i Digital SLR with 18 - 135 IS STM lens.
That's it, I don't bother with any other rubbish.
Windows 8 x64
UAC - Maximum Setting
Various system hardening measures
MBAM on demand
IE10 w/ Fanboy TPL's & LastPass
Common sense v1.0
Used to run SRP's, GPO's, with LUA, paid AV suite etc etc
Never found anything, been alerted to anything, let alone been infected since XP to the best of my knowledge so got rid of it all, too easy to get paranoid. Now running light and free.
Have gone back to Sandboxie 3.76 in Windows 8 Pro - couldn't get Sandboxie 4 beta to 'force' my Downloads folder!
Running on 2 computers MSE on Vista and Windows 7. On Windows 8 Windows Defender and EMET.
On all 3 running only one paid software and that is Hitman Pro. I honestly feel this is more then enough and is proving itself every day.
Okay im back with comodo internet security 6 and added zemana antilogger into the mix.
Is zemana needed or is comodo ok on its own.
Pretty much what I have done. Throw in FF + NS + ABP and you got yourself a nice slim set up for an advanced computer user.
