And what if you go the other way and close holes in the sandbox where only Firefox can run and connect to the net.

Not a single one of those Matousec or comodo's tests have a hope of running.

A default sandbox used as per instructions will keep you much safer than any realtime AV/AM.

Throw in Returnil for those just in case scenarious where you may double click an exe sample instead of dragging/dropping to an archive which I have done a few times after handling several gig of samples.

And always have images as backups regardless of your setup.

Here's an app that has just released a free version that is a cross between rollback and imaging which I only started using/testing today.

By the way, Sandboxie is shareware; not freeware.

Of course. Which is why I would use Quick Recovery, Immediate Recovery and/or Applications Settings (only the necessary files are allowed to be accessed unless you allow access to the entire folder).
