Seeing as more and more of us move on to the x64 platform, this also means you can't run 'genuine' sandboxes or HIPS any more. The sandboxes and HIPS available today on x64 can only 'recommend' certain malware or chosen applications to do certain actions, in difference to what they can do on a x86 system. So, what are your thoughts about this? Is an x64 system with a tight security setup more safe than a x86 security setup can be? Correct me if I'm wrong, but with x86 you're in total control of what happens, as it doesn't have the kernel patching and your security software can inject itself properly to protect your computer.
