@target please read my post above regarding infrared dust cleaning, this cannot be done with a digital camera

This 2000$ scanner (if it was a Nikon) actually may go for more than 2000$ today, since they were excellent, are not being produced any more, and are still in high demand.

Yes, it is clear from the replies that one can have more security when giving up comfort and when one has more horse power.

But I don't want to do either! :)

I have a relatively old ThinkPad with  a dual core T4500 @2,3GHZ and 4GB Ram 32bit Win7 system. It serves me fine and I have no plans to upgrade in the near future. Ironically I also have several Android devices, and my main ones all have quad cores :). More and more I work with Android and that's also why I am not really willing to invest too much into the Intel platform and have to think hard to even buy Sandboxie, since prices for Windows software are 10 times+ what they are for Android.

And I also like comfort and don't want to do this reboot thing all the time or have a system bogged down by VMs, drumming my fingertips until it starts and finally runs. My system has just enough speed for me as it is, less just will not work (you must know my notebook is a 14in. because I travel a lot I have weight restrictions).

It is also harder for me to analyze software in VMs, it is easier to do in a sandbox.

Thanks majoMO for your suggestions. Secubrowser seems interesting.

@mouser: I think VMs are invaluable for incompatible programs. For other purposes, I find Sandboxie-like software easier to handle and faster.

Hi everybody,

I have used the portable Sandboxie now for a number of years and have been thinking to generally Sandbox my surfing and buy the full version (any discounts known?).

Before I do that, I wanted to ask my knowledgeable compatriotes at DC, if there may be another Sandbox which is just as good or better than Sandboxie, and may even be free.

Here is f.e. a list of them:

I use Sandboxie for the following purposes:
Trying out programs
Analyzing programs (where do they write files, how deep do they manipulate my system, exporting their registry entries - so that I can install them manually without bloat if I desire to keep them - I use Sandboxie Diff and/or Total Commander for most of that process).

What are your comments/recommendations?
