Thread: Enabling Virtualization

    Default Enabling Virtualization

    Under the "advanced settings" tab in Forcefield, there is a tick box marked "Enable virtualization". Presumably, removing the tick would disable "virtualization" :-)

    I tried this in my install out of curiosity, and there appeared to be no discernible difference to the way my browser (Firefox 2) operated. It retained the white glowing border, continued to display the Forcefield toolbar, and allowed me to open a "private" browser. So my question: do any of the folk here know what this setting actaully impacts upon in real terms? I would have thought that, given the way forcefield is described, its effects would be pretty major.

    Thanks

    Hi!
    if you disable virtualisation... temporary browser file will be stored in your browser standard space and not isolated from the system or encrypted.

    You still have the white glowing border since ZAFF its not only protecting you with virtualisation but blocking/warning you about suspicious or phishing sites as well blocking known spyware sites and scanning downloads. To have your browser free of ZAFF you need to shut it down or open an unprotected session.

    Hope this helps.
