    you will see exactly what happened with greenborder and safespace,i knew that will happen

    GreenBorder, which is based in Mountain View, California, where Google has its headquarters, posted a message at its website announcing that it had been bought by Google. Google confirmed the purchase of GreenBorder, saying the deal was completed mid-May 2007 but the financial terms were not disclosed. GreenBorder said it is no longer taking on new customers and will service current subscribers until their contracts expire. GreenBorder was founded in 2001 and backed by venture capital.

    The terms of the deal and Google's specific plans for GreenBorder's technology were not disclosed.

    The fate of the technology became apparent when Google Chrome was launched in September 2008: several former GreenBorder employees were named in a description of the new browser's sandboxing ability

    this is what is left for:SafeSpace

    Maybe yes, maybe no. In time we ll know. But as of today, saying Sandboxie is gone is wrong, its premature, IMO. Jmonge, like I said earlier, "Most of the people that think Sandboxie is dead are people that don't use it". Thats really the truth.:)

    You know, if Sandboxie becomes all bloated or its radically changed, I ll be the first one to stop using newer versions. If that's the case, I ll switch to the current free version and see how long that can last. But until we know what really gonna happen with SBIE, I am staying put.

    Back with something I feel comfortable with, Avira Free.

    I love using 360 IS but there's just so many problems with it at the current moment that bothers me. Like the late start, the lack of a actual webshield (it says it has one but it doesn't work) just things like that.

    Webshields isn't that important. the files will eventually end up on the disk anyways, and are scanned then.
    on the other hand network stream scanning has a lot of disadvantages. Ever wondered why so many users complain about lags? problems with streaming video? aborted downloads?
    most of those are caused by web shields intercepting the traffic.

    As 360IS is scanning downloads once they are finished. before you even execute them.

    That is true, But I have never had a web slowdown with a HTTP scanner yet (which is what I consider a "webshield") yet besides bitdefender trafficlight. What I meant to say earlier is 360IS doesn't have a functioning network shield (Blocks blacklisted URL's) And Yes 360 does have powerful download protection but I had some problems with it, sometimes it would work and sometimes it wouldn't. As for the resident protection/detection there is a noticeable Lag behind when the file hits the HD and when it is detected and removed. Now for some users this isn't really a big deal but I am a nit picker when it comes to AV's and those are game breaking issues to me. Now if they are eventually fixed then I would be more then 100% happy to return to 360IS.

    Well, I can tell that I've used every single antivirus product (ESET, Avast, Avira, ESET, Norton, Kaspersky, 360IS, Webroot, GData, F-Secure, AVG....etc) every single one of those didn't fit me (not only detection but in different ways.) performance, usability, overall protection...

    Avira is a good product I liked it in some time, but I started to notice that when its real-time protection detects a malware its removal is very very slow I don't know why. Even if the file didn't infect my pc and its a single exe it take a lot of time to delete. That's because no AV is 100% in everything. but I believe Avira needs a lot of improvements (mainly in the user-interface and virus removal "real-time shield"). Although of this slowness in removing malware which detected by the real-time shield, its "on-demand Scan" removal process can take 5 seconds removing "500 file" while the real-time shield can take much more 1-2mins removing single file. I'm saying this depends on my long experience with avira.

    Supposedly they're for web exploits, but virtually none of them work against modern browsers. The possibility of the few being prolific enough in the wild to catch average users and an AV detecting them are both very slim.
    I didn't use Avast's Web Shield prior to 2014 for those very reasons. I switched it back on, because Network Shield (URL blocker) and Script Shield were both integrated. So far no noticeable problems with the new Web Shield though.

    What do you mean by that? Selling his software? Didn't sandboxie have 64 bit support before it got sold?

    Love it. I've always liked CFW. I know that some people don.t care for it but it works well and is very light. If I want I can run browsers virtualized and safe from the system.

    Ditched NVT ERP. Figured I didn't need it with CFW D+ running. I have MBAM backing up WSA. Logical choice for pinch hitter.
