I understand how Sandboxie is good for protecting your system from malware, but by the same token, it prevents your AV and other security softs from protecting the browser. So how do you make sure your log-in credentials and other sensitive browser input is not leaking out? That's potentially worse than a little havoc on the system that can be fixed by restoring from a system image.

I was not trying to be confrontational with this question -- I am just trying to figure out how people use the tool.
What's the prevalent method:
1 delete contents of sandbox before entering sensitive browser sessions?
2 use a non-sandboxed browser for sensitive browser sessions?
3 other?

For your log-in credentials, use a browser like Chrome, Opera or Firefox that comes with Private Browsing where details will not be save and will remove when you will close it.

Secondly, use password manager and make a backup.

So far the best way to protect and prevent any breach since Sandboxie must use on a standard basis.
