Has anyone tried this to help protect there wallet? I have used it in the past just for testing out downloads and it is pretty solid. I even tried a rogue av once and i could exterminate it easily.

Won't help. Programs can still READ files on your harddrive, and sandboxie doesn't block outgoing connections from sandboxed programs. So a trojan could still upload your private keys.

What are you trying to protect from what?

Sandboxie, as I understand it, protects the rest of your system from rogue applications.  This could be a backdoor in a legit program, or a compromised program (as in a web browser after a malicious site), etc.  Those rogue applications won't be able to access your wallet.

However, unless you're planning to run *every application on your system* in sandboxie, I'm not sure what gains you'd have.

It doesn't appear that you can use it to protect a program from other programs - so something running in sandboxie may not be able to touch other system resources, but other system resources could likely still touch it.

I'm a bit confused - if you've got a use case in mind, go ahead & explain it & I can take a look...

Sandboxie is a great app, I highly recommend it, but it won't protect your wallet.
