I've used it, its decent. It basically makes a sandbox around a file so it will run BUT can not infect your system. Good if you -ahem- DL questionable source material (or want to surf with no logs on your system...ie this plus good proxy = decent anonomity'ish). I personally prefer a more robust approach to my sandboxes and use VMware....but this is a lot less hassle. ;)

Norton is a plague on mankind and the operators of this company should be shot in the left testical, have their right testical stretched up over their ear and pierced into thier nose. both legs amputated at the ankels, their bottocks rotted off thier backsides with gangareen and each finger broken at the center of each bone, their thumbs eaten by rabid dogs untill they are nothing more than stumps.

Only then will i be satisfied that the GAZILLION people who are computer illiterate that unknowingly buy new computers with this hellspawned software pre installed have been avenged.

Thank you jerk for making me shoot milk out my nose.


As for Sandboxie, I'd like to use it but it doesn't support XP64 easily.

Hah, not to flame but I've tried Norton 09, it's still the same slow, bloated and all around bad av program that it has been for the last 5+ years.

It does not compare to NOD32 in any way shape or form.

Your kidding right? Please tell you are.

Even Avast which is free is 100x better than Norton.
