    Hi all fellow BHW members, I'd like your help or advice, since my pc is driving me crazy, I downloaded a program yesterday and it was full of viruses, Virus Total didn't show a thing, as well as my Kaspersky Pure Antivirus(the KIS module):(

    It's so fucking annoying, because the computer is running with low speed, suddenly all my RAM memory is being used, and CPU Usage is always at least over 60%, I formatted my pc and don't want this to happen again.

    I'll install KIS again although I don't trust it so much now, and wanted to use Sandboxie, I know a lot of people use it, I think I was stupid before, because I thought I was safe with KIS, so I went to Sandboxie site and saw that you have to pay 29Euros for a lifetime license, so for those who use it, do you pay the license or just install and uninstall every 30 days?

    Thnx in advance for your answers, any help would be appreciated, I'm so fucking frustrated right now:rolleyes:

    Nope it is not free and you have to pay to use it. but sometime back there were serials floating around that worked but now they use license server to verify the license so not much luck.

    VMWare Player is free.

    But you have to install a whole OS like Xp into it to make it work.

    VirtualBox and qemu are free, and can be used for the same purpose.

    Sandboxie is free but starts to show a nag screen after 30 days are up with a few features disabled. Looks like the latest version comes with a crack instead of a key- Google sandboxie 3.4907 *incl crack*. Using Sandboxie is SO much more convenient and faster than a virtual machine. If you do use Sandboxie though, make sure you have a configured firewall because even though the application won't be able to change anything on your system, it can still read data (usernames, passwords, files, etc) and send it somewhere you don't want it to go.

    If you have the speed available, and this is what I do, use Sandboxie Inside of VirtualBox. Virtualbox seems faster than VMWare to me, but remember to create a network share and make a shortcut of it on both desktops for easy file transfer (although VMWare has built in drag and drop).


    By the way, if you haven't already reformatted and are willing to put in the time to get your computer to the clean state it was once in, head over to bleepingcomputer. The folks there are very nice and will give you thorough step by step instructions, but be sure to read and follow the sticky posts.
