    Hi All, :D

    This is my first post on here and hope its in the correct place. I'm hoping to get some advice on a few of my questions and hope to learn from the vast knowledge within this forum.

    I have a question I hope someone can answer or advise on.
    If you have an Internet Security package(G-Data, Comodo, Norton) and install sandboxing software (Geswall, Bufferzone), will they play nice or will the sandboxing software make the antivirus less affective?

    For example if malware gets through sandbox will antivirus be less likely to catch it as the situation is not normal due to sandbox. o_O

    when using more than 1 security app there is always the chance there will be a conflict, be it BSOD, system instability etc.

    but a sandbox should not interfere with the detection of a AV app.

    I use Sandboxie, Prevx3 and MSE.
    I have not noticed any problems.
    However, the previous post is right.
    It could happen.

    Prevx is compatible with most of the AV suites, so you haven't experienced any problem.

    With Comodo Internet Security if something gets past the AV the sandbox catches it. :D
