    With a set-up as well-thought-out as yours, I figured you probably had a system image too, but I mentioned it just in case.

    Hello! I used sandboxie Just to virtualize browser because the safe run for websites of KIS 2012 has problems with applications such as roboform and Internet download manager.
    But if I want to try a program, then I use Wondershare Time Freeze. The program could also hide a virus not detected by the antivirus in use But restarting the PC Wondershare Time Freeze it back to its previous state infection.
    Features of Wondershare Time Freeze here:

    Panda was super-light. If I needed a real-time AV, that's what I'd run.
