@davisd only reasons to use Windows :

- working with security software.
- gaming.
- needing MS Office or other MS software.
1. Security softs are a terrible hobby. Get a different hobby. Get up and run, swim, climb, soar...
2. Except for professional gamers, people don't need to game. Gaming is another terrible human pastime.
3. Very few need to use MS Office. Only people that must use MS Office for their jobs need it.

:love:

Most people are better off with Chromebook.

Chromebook is not very exciting.

Chromebook is bulletproof and boring. The security theater itself is a hobby for many people. Chromebook you can leave it all behind, and spend more time doing productive things without any worry for the most part.

It's sort of like vacuuming and mopping. I cannot even believe the amount of time I wasted vacuuming and mopping my hardware floors in a rather large home. Now I have 4 robotic systems that do it all, I don't lift a finger. I think I have a dozen hours a week free to do something else. The amount of time and money wasted on Windows Security Theater is astounding.

I made jest, but it's true.

Living with the Chromebook ecosystem is good - for now. How long will it be good ? No one can know, but we do know the peace of mind won't last forever. I personally think it will be good for years to come, given that Google is merely nibbling at Windows' heals - and that suits me just fine.

I got it installed when I want to get screenshots, otherwise no Sandboxie or Hyper-V VM.

Yes, sandboxie is still an important program for me. Both for security, easy junk removal and the possibility to run two instances of the same program. Have one matlab script running whilst coding away on the other instance, for example.
Despite having plenty of security layers I feel vulnerable when surfing the web without sandboxie.
And finally, no worries about persistent cookies, wiping the sandbox removes them all. (Doesn't work against fingerprinting though.)

Yes I'm using Chrome under SB for regular browsing without problems.
I think it's an additional security layer to mitigate any potential threats and malicious redirects.
I've set the automatic deletion of the session at the browser closing.

I like sandboxie for my webbrowser, pdf viewer and so on.
With autodelete on exit i never got to care about cookies (and most other stuff).

If you are more interested you can do something more in advanced configuration, and disable access read/write for disk/folder where program no need and don't should get access. That can help a bit help against spyware ^^

@Quassar Thanks for mentioning it. I got my sandboxes restricted on internet (if possible) and programs that could run inside them but i totally forgot the option for "blocked access".
Thanks :)

Still use it but not as often as before... Only use it for some software I rarely used or just want to try, sandbox drives related to USB, and to sandbox EpicBrowser.

If you need something restore you can use 2nd mode view.
From menu view / files and folder and from path tree chose files which you want restore from isolated space to your main system.
You can in options configure quick recovery for path and if something will changed in this sector sandboxie will auto prompt you for restore this file.

Cookies aren't security risks, i don't care about privacy. As I said my settings are for both security and convenience.
Especially for this machine, which is leisure one. On my production machine , I use ReHIPS, way better than sandboxie in term of security.

Yes, running latest Firefox build 62.03/64 bit in Sbie beta 5.27.1 as well as using it for some Windows stuff like Media Player and occ. File Explorer. For Firefox, I allow Sbie access to bookmarks in the Window/Sandbox/default box/Sandbox settings/Applications/web browser/Firefox section but that's it. Hasn't misbehaved on me yet in Windows v.1809 and this version migrated from Windows v.1803 without issues..

This is so strange, I have updated several systems to W10RS5 (some of them are VMs -> VMWare), and in 2 of them (1 VM and 1 in a real system -> laptop), the updater of RS5 warned me that SandBoxie (las stable versions) was incompatible with W10 and committed me to uninstall it manually before continue with the update :sick: but in the others systems with SandBoxie I didn't get that warning... WTF?

You need to install the beta version that's compatible with 1809, that's what I did a couple of hours ago :)

Generally speaking, it's better to use the beta version of SBIE. The stable version is behind the 8-ball for the majority of the time. When they finally get around to issuing a new stable version, something in your OS or software will change the next day and make it obsolete...
