Altiris SVS killed my firefox

After reading this on Trustware BufferZone from a link from OSNews I was quite interested in this side of virtualisation. I have to admit I haven’t actually given this one a try but after seeing a comment on OSNews referencing this Altiris SVS Review I was really impressed by the by what this could do. I thought “this would be great for testing sites on different browsers, for installing random things to try in a safe environment before propertly installing it”. So, I gave it a shot… hmm, probably my fault but i thought I’d try and install Firefox 1.07 under it for testing purposes, well, it destroyed my real Firefox and meant I spent all evening trying to fix it 😦 I ended up reinstalling Firefox and losing all my settings which was not good. Since this initial experience I haven’t tried anything further as it scares me, let me know if you’re experiences differ.

I really ought to try BufferZone now, I guess.
