Got an email from ZoneAlarm today promoting their new security prog called Force Field click here Admittedly the free download is only for the beta version but to me it looks like a sandboxing type of prog creating a virtual computer. Has anyone tried this yet? Thoughts anybody?
I tried it - gave it up - it slowed down my comp - It didn't quite work the way it should - some sites/programmes wouldn't open - Its too buggy for me just now - I'll try it again, later when it is more stable.
Thanks for the feedback ianeon. I has a suspicion that putting yet another barrier between you and the internet would have the effect of slowing things down a bit. I did find the "possible glitches" page on the ZoneAlarm site and that alone was enough to put me off.
