    Sandboxie alternative 64 bit Home Premium?

    I've been using Sandboxie for safe surfing on Vista Home Premium 32 bit. Now I'm preparing for a new PC with Vista Home Premium 64 bit and Sandboxie is not compatible. Other than conventional anti-virus and firewall does anyone have an alternative?

    So far I'm thinking along the lines of Virtual Box since VMWare is a bit pricey. But I'm not sure how well it works as I've never set it up before.

    Apparently 64 bit Vista tries to prevent altering the kernel image in memory which is how Sandboxie and similar programs intercept disk writes to redirect everything to a sandbox folder.

    At this point all I have so far is running Firefox with NoScript.

    Sadly no I looked all over the web for one and could not find any. Sucks. I really wish there was one.

    Somebody suggested Zonealarm ForceField in these forums for Vista x64. I myself haven't tried ForceField because I run Sandboxie on Vista 32-bit.

    There is a reason for this - Vista and its IE protected mode already runs in a sandbox, plus the 64bit architecture of the OS runs all apps in their own sandbox in the first place....

    MilesAhead,

    Not sure if this is quite what you're looking for, but I found Disk Write Copy, seems to work something similar to Returnil.
