Windows 7: snadboxie, free edition

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, SP1
 
 
snadboxie, free edition

2 questions :

1. ) I had sandboxie installed once and found it hard to use. The native Help section was no help. I uninstalled it after failing to find a tutorial I could use from the net.
Would some one with first hand experience provide me with a link for a good tutorial that I can understand ?

2.) I understand the primary reason of using Sandboxie.
In light of lack of Q&A about Sandboxie in any forums, i cannot help to think it is NOT widely used.
That comes to this : what is the downside of Sandboxie ?

Thank you.

Thank you.
I'll read it over.

Won't let me give you rep points. You must be inside the list of 16.

Sandboxie seems to be a new concept, so it is somewhat normal there is no much noise about it!
On the last links in wiki page, they talk about some problems:
Sandboxie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
And here:

If you have a question the users on the forum and the author are both very good at helping you to do what you want to do:

www.sandboxie.com :: Index

With Sandboxie version 3.46 is the cuttoff, so to speak. That's where I stopped upgrading just because after that at unspecified intervals it calls home to test your license. Also the author can "kill" your registration if he so desires. I don't use it as much as I used to. Mainly to run a browser "sandboxed" now and then. I still think it's better than Returnil type solutions that depend on a reboot to undo what malware did. If it's "good" malware, you won't be booting after running it anyway.

Hi to you all. I would like to share with you this unpleasant event that made me very sad. My U.S.B. stick (I believe you might call it flash drive) got infected by trojan. AVG offered to get rid of the infection so I accepted and "kaboem" 4 of my folders was gone! I have no idea where to look...
