    "I can't find a the perfect word to attach to this website's image because it is out of this world. No matter what type of Computer Security System you are interested in, you'll find help and quality content here. The content is awsome, well displayed and well arranged. The menu and speed is excellent. Navigation, Response and Relevance are also the best of the best. I don't even have to mention the Links because i must admit that i have never seen any better. I will let other people say more or invent other words because it really does suit it! Keep doing what you are doing now because you are exactly on the right path! Thanks for sharing! BOOKMARKED!"

    Kimrich – Thank you for your visit and comment 🙂
    I use Sandboxie all of the time as I import malware and viruses and run everything within the sandbox, recovering only what I need to and it is a program that I highly recommend others to use as it offers superb protection.
    It’s a very cheap and worthwhile program which keeps malware off users machines with ease.

    Happy Holidays,
    Regards
    Colin

    I have no connection to sandboxie.

    Firefox launched within the VM environment of Sandboxie has made my system bulletproof. I’m a fearless surfer and should have had my system trashed sometime in the last year but its never happened. Sometimes I visit obviously dangerous sites just for the challenge. It’s liberating to know that with common sense in place, nothing can touch you if your VM setup is strong. I have ZERO anti malware on my system (no A-V at all), PeerGuardian 2, Utorrent, use webmail ONLY, a default setttings router, and Windows firewall. That’s it.

    People I know continue to struggle with malware issues. I tell them EXACTLY what I did, and they IGNORE the advice. You can lead a horse to water.

    My freeware edition of sandboxie is everything it claims. Next year I’ll buy it.

    Internet Explorer has always had problems, and being the most widely used browser with its faults, it is also the most easily exploited.
    I use various speed tests but will check yours out too, thank you for the link.
