Sandbox program for 64 bit?

Is there a sandbox type program that works on win7 x64? I heard there is something like patchguard that prevents it, but maybe there is a program that works with it?

It's tricky to use sandbox programs on 64-bit due to PatchGuard kernel protection..

From what I've seen, the protection programs that do work in 64 bit use the Shadow Copy services to run on a virtual copy of the system partition or some such scheme.

The Avast beta IS has a process virtualization module (sandbox) that works on x64. A work in progress though, certainly has bugs, but it looks promising. Avast 5 IS won't be free when it's finalized though.

Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 also supports Windows x64 with it's "Sandboxed" virtual safe environment.

How is the sandbox mode activated in Kaspersky Pure 2010?

Right click any application/file and choose 'Safe Run'. However, do note that it too doesn't support full sandboxing, its partial due to the implementation of kernel patch protection on x64 OS.

need a sandbox program
that works on x64, NOT Sandboxie because it's gay and not free. It has to be free (not 30-day trail BS), it has to be capable of a number of separated sandboxes at the same time (so no demo version BS). I'm so sick and tired of those people who attempt to make money by providing your free stuff...
