    Sandboxing Newbies Questions


    I have been searching the web trying to learn what I can about sandboxing. However, I am finding it all a bit confusing since there does not appear to be anyone who has put up any guidnce for beginners in sandboxing. Yes, I've learnt what sandboxing is and what it protects you from and why it is needed. I've also learnt that before testing any newly downloaded program particularly those you think may be dodgy it/they should be run in a sandbox. What I'm not finding is any advice on the practicalities of sandboxing programs and which of my existing programs should also be sandboxed, if any -- or is it a case of only trying new software in a sandbox. I use Firefox and Thunderbird and ocassionally Opera to go online but are they run in a sandbox as I understand Chrome to run in a sandbox? I've also reason to believe that Adobe Reader also runs in a sandbox.

    As you can perhaps gather, I am a complete newby to sandboxing. I've found loads of info on sandboxing programs and one I've seen highly recommended is Shade Sandbox, which I believe to be a relative newcomer on the sandbox scene. Does anyone have any info on this program. I know that Sandboxie is an old favourite but are there any freeware sandboxing programs other than Shade Sandbox out there that are worth looking at.

    Any help would be most appreciated. Tthank you.

    Newbie, looking for new graphics card.

    I am currently having problems with my 4870s noise.
    In my honest opinion, its just too damn loud.

    Getting to the point, i am looking for a new video card that is
    • Quiet/silent
    • Decent power
    • around 120 dollars or less.
    • Dual dvi outputs for 2 monitors
    • Easy/Low maintenance
    • Not a puzzle to install
    Im going to buy a new video card very soon, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
