I have a friend that constantly keeps having viruses on his computer. The main problem is that he's using Windows with 2-3 antiviruses but he keeps opening unverified Powerpoint files and binaries under Windows.
I think the alternative would be to install Ubuntu on that computer and to install IE and MS Office in Wine.
I want to ask what are my chances of succesfuly achieving this considering that Wine support is limited.
I also want to ask if Wine is in any way a sandbox in terms of security. I haven't fiddled much with it, normally if I want to run Windows programs I just fire up a Virtualbox but I can't ask of my friend to do that since he's a basic user.
Also has anyone tried sandboxie ? Is it effective ? Does it actually deliver what it promises ?
If anyone tried this before I'd appreciate some feedback on this.
