    For anyone interested in trying Zone Alarm's Forcefield, I found this at www.pcmagazine.com.

    ZoneAlarm will allow users to download the full version of its ZoneAlarm ForceField virtualized browser application for free on Patch Tuesday, the company said Friday.

    "Half of all Web sites are infested with some form of malware according to recent studies, including many of the leading search, social networking and shopping sites," Check Point Software, which owns ZoneAlarm, said in a statement. "A majority of all new malware is released on the same day as the corresponding browser vulnerability is announced, illustrating that patching alone is not enough."

    Users who go to the designated ZoneAlarm site at 6 AM PDT on Tuesday, Aug. 12 will receive a complimentary version of ForceField. The offer is good for twenty-four hours after the launch.

    Normally, ForceField costs $29.99 to purchase (including a year's subscription of updates) and $19.99 thereafter for another year's subscription.


    First announced in 2007, the heart of the ForceField system is a "bubble of security"a virtualization system that isolates the browser from the computer. Any browser-based exploits fail because they can't touch the computer's actual files or Registry items. If a user is tricked into launching a Trojan, it, too, is trapped in the bubble. ForceField displays a visible force-field "aura" around each browser window to show that it's active.

    Your link needs to be corrected. It has an extra period character at the end that needs to be removed. It's easy enough to fix in the address box but the error might confuse a new person.

    The specific article is here:

    Sounds similar to the shareware Sandboxie.
