Re: Sandboxing

i have been using sandboxie or a month now and so far so good. I can believe i didn't know about this method before. I am sure it is not 100% proof but i ll take my chances.

Thanks for the suggestions for other programs! I will try them out in the future.

Re: Firefox freaking out

It is probably a combination of retarded Win7 firewall and AVG anti virus.

I made it access suck-o anyway, so i dont really know how to reverse what i did. I wouldn't worry about it unless more people have that issue... Glad to know suck-o didnt get a virus lolz.

Firefox freaking out

My Firefox just reported suck-o as a dangerous site... i had to add it as an exception. Windows 7 firewall freaked out too.

Is this old news or is something going on...

Or is it just me.

Re: Sandboxing

Thanks for the link. Had to skip the first 8 minutes... it was painful to watch, but they did a good job comparing the programs later on.

Judging by the video, Sandboxie is definitely something i want to experiment with.

Sandboxing

Today i read about this term 'sandboxing' for the first time. I guess its a term for isolating a running code and not letting it do any changes outside a specified area. Do you guys use this method. I assume its a program. Google search gave me a program called 'sandboxie'. I am trying to run a piec...

Re: Help recover a hard drive

aha well that makes sense lol. I got the program you recomended b_b. It got me some pictures and it stops after 10 minutes of running. It just says 4 hours left and freezes there. Does that mean HD caput?

Any other free programs you can recommend?

It was so large that it could hardly fit. On top of that, the power supply connections for the card were on its side, making it ...
