Sandboxie 5.55.7 / Sandboxie Plus 1.0.7 – FREE

Sandboxie is a proprietary sandbox based isolation program for Windows operating systems. It creates a sandbox-like isolated operating environment.

There you can run or install all applications without permanently modifying the local or mapped drive. An isolated virtual environment allows to control testing of untrusted programs and web surfing.

Sandboxie runs your programs in an isolated space. It prevents them from making permanent changes to other programs and data in your computer.

When you run a program on your computer, data flows from the hard disk to the program via read operations. The data is then processed and displayed, and finally flows back from the progam to the hard disk via write operations.

Sandboxie changes the rules such that write operations do not make it back to your hard disk.

  • Intercept changes to both your files and registry settings, making it virtually impossible for any software to reach outside the sandbox.
  • Traps cached browser items into the sandbox as a by-product of normal operation. So when you throw away the sandbox, all the history records and other side-effects of your browsing disappear as well.

Benefits of the Isolated Sandbox:

  • Secure Web Browsing. If you run Web browser under the protection of Sandboxie, all malicious software downloaded by the browser is trapped in the sandbox and can be discarded trivially.
  • Enhanced Privacy. Browsing history, cookies, and cached temporary files collected while Web browsing stay in the sandbox and don’t leak into Windows.
  • Secure E-mail. Viruses and other malicious software that might be hiding in your email can’t break out of the sandbox and can’t infect your real system.
  • Windows Stays Lean. Prevent wear-and-tear in Windows by installing software into an isolated sandbox.

    wow, redundant software, most browsers run in a "sandbox" of sorts, besides, why is this needed anyway???

    It's a nice idea, but this program always had some issues whenever I used it. Avast meanwhile has its Auto Sandbox, for those who want it. And you could argue that an Anti Virus program should (try to) make a sandbox superfluous. Maybe a sandbox could be a replacement for Windows User Account Control? I like it best, not to be bothered by such 'solutions'. AV, Windows Defender, Firewall, and some registry cleaner (wise) can do the job.

    This program creates a copy of your current reg settings and any files required to be accessed by the file being tested and redirects all the changes to the copies instead of the originals. This saves the original system from being infected. So using 168MB is just below normal for that...

    168MB of occupied space when so many now have 100's or thousands of gigs from huge hard drive capacities,this is not an issue. Considering the security this program provides, you should not compromise.

    and see the total size occupied for it!
    Incredible 168 Mb! No more.

    jeremyofmany,
    How about firewall do I still need it it's great that antivirus not necessary because it eats lots of resources... Can I trust this soft if I understand good it isolates from the system files viruses but how about soft/games I dont see here written that sandbox isolates these files?

    its been a year since i found sandboxie. Yes, this is a useful software. back way before im using it with vista and kaspersky. sandboxie lets you run applications in virtual. there was this virus which hides itsel to a malwarebytes installation ive downloaded not from the official site, and kaspersky said it is clean. thankfully i run it using sandboxie and then i noticed that it planted files in system32 folder and also added registry files unrelated to malwarebytes and also 3 files were opened before installation. my hunch is that it has embedded trojan. after a day, i updated kaspersky and scanned again the mlwarebytes installer and voila! the installler has been tampered with trojans. vudo ones!

    tested today in win7 rtm so far so good. i hope final version comes out early.

    ps. 64bit os is the next future but in real enterprise world, 64 it still lagging in compatability and there are more 32bit users than 64.. so if you have 4gb or less better use 32bit, 99% no worries. just use 64bit os if you have more than 5gb and you are in video editing or CAD etc.. just my view in os.
