Quote from: XhenEd on June 21, 2016, 11:08:52 AMIs it always slow when creating a new isolated environment?As an example, when I create an isolated environment for Chrome and Copy User Data is checked, it would take about 2-3 minutes to launch, then it would hang for about 1-2 minutes, then all would be good to go. So, approximately, creating a new isolated environment takes about 5 minutes before it can be used.My laptop has HDD, not SSD. So, expect relative slowness.
Quote from: fixer on June 21, 2016, 09:27:32 PMChrome (and chrome-forked) browser can be installed in 2 ways: in Program Files (actually this one is preferable) and in real user home directory. If there are some files in real user home directory that program needs, they should be copied to ReHIPS user profile directory as isolated programs don't have any access to real user folders. So if Chrome was installed at second location... well, there'll be some lag at first start/RulesPack rules installation. Anyway it only happens at first time, so it shouldn't be too bothersome.
Quote from: fixer on June 22, 2016, 11:57:49 AMI don't think anything can be done to make this easier. The problem is: we've got a bunch of files, they should be isolated program writable. So we have 2 options.1. We add some element of risk by either allowing isolated program access to real user home directory or copy them, but don't delete and copy all the files on isolated environment recreation, just some. Both are security risks.2. We copy them all and recreate also by deleting and copying all files. Takes some time, but safe from security point of view.

I have provided screenshots when NIS add-on is present and missing from IE.Also I have just discovered another issue regarding Internet Explorer loading normally (not in an isolated desktop environment). If you press windows key and g ,you get the xbox games recorder as my testing laptop is 5 years old does not support this feature and I receive an error message - "Sorry this pc doesn't meet the hardware requirements for recording clips learn more" if I click on learn more Internet Explorer is launched normally - not within the isolated desktop? should this happen? screenshot provide in post. Also I have not tested yet but when launching Internet explorer and does not auto switch to the isolated desktop I mentioned in my previous post, could be the result of Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit free, not sure as yet when I have time I shall test.
