I'm trying out ZAX with Forcefield.
I have some questions about Forcefield that neither
the online help
in ZAX nor the
down-loadable Forcefiled "user guide" answered for me.
I was hoping I could get some clarification so I could utilize these features more effectively.
What's the difference between turning Forcefield off and opening an "unprotected browser"?
The help documents seem to imply that these
are not the same, but I can't figure out what the differences are.
What specific protections
do you lose when
NOT using "virtualization"?
Before I read up on this, I "thought" that the entire point of Forcefield WAS "virtualization" aspect, but I discovered that virtualization was not even on by default when installing ZAX.
I'm unclear how Forcefield is still effective when virtualization is off.
When I use an unprotected browser, do any of the FF settings matter -- i.e. does it make ANY difference if Virtualization is checked or not in the FF settings?
I noticed that temp internet
files appear to no longer be stored in the normal folder that you can view
via the IExplorer "properties" page (Settings > View Files.)
Is this due to virtualization being on?
Where are the files now stored, and how do you access them?
(I ask because I sometimes need to dig a picture or
out of the temp files folder, but now I don't know where to find these files.)
Are cookies still stored in the normal temp internet files location when virtualization is on?
Based on the "last access" info it "looks" like they are, but I'm not clear how this all works.
I had some other questions, but I'll just leave it at these for now.
Thanks for any feedback on this,
