I was just reading about someone wanting to use Sandboxie with Virtual Machines - that is, running their Virtual Machine inside Sandboxie.

I've personally been happily running VirtualBox inside Sandboxie with no problems at all. I've been doing it for about 2 years. However, I only do this when I am testing live malware, which is not very often anymore.

Anyway, just wanted to say that I've not noticed any conflicts when running VirtualBox inside Sandboxie, so it certainly is possible. Does it truly give extra protection? I'm not 100% sure, but it feels like it does haha. I've tried making new snapshots etc. inside Sandboxie and all is functional. When I delete the sandbox, everything reverts back to baseline (of course it does, otherwise Sandboxie would have been "bypassed").

I have also tested this scenario with Shadow Defender, and it works fine too. Of course, the more (real-time) third party security software installed, the higher chance there is of conflict.

Does anyone else ever run their Virtual Machines inside Sandboxie or Shadow Defender etc?

Sandboxie + LUA + SRP + DEP + SuRun
Windows Firewall + NAT Router + IPSec (on-demand)
VirtualBox (on-demand)
Drive SnapShot (on-demand)

Yeah that was me. By the response I recieved from the wilders folks, I don't think it can be done easily. For some reason I thought it would be easy to perform. For the moment I'm running VMware with win 7 ultimate and on my host I have shadowdefender running.
