Sandboxie Description

Sandboxie is a very useful developer tool for running programs in a protected environment. It is a sandbox-based isolated operating environment that enables you to run or install applications without permanently modifying data stored on your computer. Sandboxie can seamlessly maintain your privacy by making sure that your browser cookies, cache and browsing history stays within the sandbox.

Initially developed exclusively for Internet Explorer, the virtualization software is now just as effective for any other browser. Whether you browse the Web or download and run applications, it requires a lot of protection to prevent malware from spreading into your system. Thus, the Internet tool can help you browse web pages with unsafe content, check viruses and a lot more without having to worry about any consequences.

You can use Sandboxie for Windows to view and manage programs, start the web browser, email reader or other Windows Apps. It helps you remove traces of your Internet or computer activities, as well as reverse any changes made to your Favorites, Home Page, and Registry. Even the files that were downloaded during a sandbox session will be removed after the sandbox is cleared.

The security software supports almost all Windows versions, including Windows XP and Windows 7. For beginners, the Sandboxie is preset to optimal protection and no further configuration is required.  But advanced users can configure the program directly from its INI file.
