This program is way past it's prime. In using to remove spyware it seems to have a hard time finding real spyware. It labels many weak items as spyware. It won't touch any hard to remove items. There are much better choices out there.

I've been using Sandboxie for a few years, started with the free version. It did such a great job, I felt these guys deserved to get paid. So I bought the paid version. Most of the time my anti-virus catches the malware, the few times it hasn't , just deleting the sandbox has got rid of it. It's taken a few years, for the anti-virus companies to catch on, but now many of them offer a sandbox feature. You can't go wrong using Sanboxie.

I've been using Sandboxie for over 2 years and it works great. It is freeware but like many free programs they ask for a donation. If you pay the one time lifetime registration fee you get a few extras and the nag screen that pops up when you start the program is removed.
I bought Sandboxie 6 months ago,not for the extra stuff,but because the program works so good.I felt they deserved some money. Plus I would not want to lose this program. Which happens sometimes with free programs.

The best firewall out there. In fact better than the ones you have to pay for. Inbound protection is perfect. Nothing gets in. Outbound is also very good. Install is fast and easy.
Some users say it's simple to use I don't agree you have to spend some time learning this firewall to get the most out of it. I had it pop up all the time when I first install it. It really was a huge pain. As many as 5 or 6 pop up for the same program. When I tried one of the internet security suites for a short time I took it off. When I put it back on I set defense on trainning mode for a few days. That worked great wasn't bugged all the time.After a few days changed it to recommend setting clean pc mode. Remember when installing a new programs set it to
cowgaR is right, if you have a router you don't need a firewall. Well at least a inbound firewall.
But if using a router make sure you change the routers password or else you could be wide open.
I think most user's should have good outbound protection in case malware gets past your anti-virus. That's where Comodo defense comes in, or get Threatfire. Both these programs have good HIPS protection.

This is a good program works with your anti-virus program. It's a Host Intrusion Prevention (HIPS) program. Not met to be a stand alone anti-virus.The free version works fine. But there is also a paid version. Didn't try that one I'm to cheap.
