On certain processors it can actually escalate outside of the VM (though it's probably rare you'd come across one that does that.)

Interesting.

Name such processors?

Not an AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Processor by any chance? :shifty:

There we go!

Took a second to find a reply that suggests a host file!! #1 protrection tool!!
Get a good one here, http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm and then you don't even need some stupid ad blocking addon!!

NoScript and WoT are both pieces of junk and/or more of a PITA, than anything else.

Porn sites ARE NOT anymore dangerous than coming here. It's all about what has been injected/added to the particular site you're at.


Sorry, but I have to disagree with you about the usefulness of Adblock and NoScript. Adblock is so good that it should be installed by default, but
since it isn't, it's always recommended. NoScript is useful too, but I agree that it's a PITA. Most people could do without it but it's great for the paranoid!
I haven't used WOT in a long time though, so I can't say much about it. Good job mentioning the MVPS site; I've been using that one forever!

I can confirm Sandboxie runs great on Windows 8.
