Sorry for responding so late. Yes...I use Sandboxie. Have been doing so for about a year now. Big fan. Although I still have an anti-virus program and an on-demand anti-spyware program on my system, I find myself relying mostly on Sandboxie for protection when surfing the 'net or testing new programs.

Cb2, thanks!

is it still beta and is it still free? last I looked it had reviews that said it was buggy, but hopefully that's changed. That was a couple years ago I think.

&.... Can you use it in conjuction with a firewall? I have zone alarm security suite. Has an email filter but not a web filter. Also has an operating filter but that should not interfere- simple permissions.

& how easy or difficult is it to configure? how do you like the interface?

I use SB on all my computers. That is, I have *only* Windows 32 bit operating system...computers.

I'm not aware there even WAS a 'beta. SB is available free. However, if you want to 'play' with it, that is, use more than the ONE 'default browser' 'Box, you need to buy it. It cost me $26.50[US], and that's for a LifeTime, 'all the computer I own' license. Well worth the money. Not buggy in any way, here.

Sure... run any F/W you want [although *I* don't use one, being behind a Router]

It is easy enough to configure; not so easy to "use" or interpret the results.... But thanks to good instructions and a handfull of YouTube tutorials, not hard to learn.

I don't bother running any A/V stuff at all anymore. I just run along enjoying myself, then occassionally look in the 'Box to see if any un-invited programs are there! {Have yet to find any, but thanks to the YouTube tutorials, I would now recognise them}

Great program, but definitely targetted to a small...and shrinking...group. If your OS is anything other than WIN [32]... it will not be for you...

Bill
