I'm sure there are other things I can do when I am browsing but many might be to hard and involved for me to teach my wife.

I need something like a Sandboxie light. A desktop program that would have any and all browsers usable from clicking on it and picking which browser my wife would like to use that would be boxed when it opened. Then there no problems for Sand to set it up for her use giving her protection with minimum clicks on her part.

Everything with computers is a learning experience for me so I'm glad I started this thread, I'll keep an eye looking at it.

Set up Sandboxie on your wife's computer with a desktop icon for each program you want sandboxed (instructions here)

Set the sandbox to delete contents automatically on closure.

If she has any problems all she needs to remember is "right-click" on the Sandboxie tray icon and select "Terminate All Programs"

Dan, Sandboxie on default settings is what I would call a Sandboxie light.
If you enable the setting that Sope mentioned and set Intenet explorer
as the default browser, then when she starts sandboxie it would open IE
and when she closes the browser, the sandbox would be deleted. You ll
show her how to save files and its done.

@ bo: I checked out my exception list in noscript and found that blogger.com is whitelisted (i.e. javascript is allowed). I think that the malware popup came up through a blogger site. So you're right about noscript not allowing this stuff unless it is already allowed.

@dan: Sandboxie is quite easy to use. Check out the basic tutorials here:

Checkout the review of sandboxie in youtube by mrizos. This is part one:
