Sandboxie is a handy app that sits between your system and the programs you run, keeping them safe inside an isolated portion of your own hard disk: the sandbox.
Why use Sandboxie?
Harmful programs and viruses usually function by trying to make changes to your computer that serve the hacker’s ends, but not yours. Sandboxie is really a sandbox app – in other words, a plan that acts as a safe zone where one can try out programs, apps and links that you suspect of being dangerous. It prevents any changes being designed to your computer by containing the program – and any viruses it may possess – within the confines of the application, and doesn’t let them loose on your PC.
Thanks to the closed tests environment created by Sandboxie, you can openly try programs that you don’t trust, without any immediate risk to your system. Just about all files created in your sandbox stay inside it and are deleted when you near it, though the program has a specific feature (‘Quick Recovery’) to recover them.
Not an antivirus
Sandboxie also features an extensive settings-menu and is thoroughly documented, including the tutorial to get you started. While you are using Sandboxie, however , you should be aware though that this is not any replacement for a standard antivirus app. Sandboxie’s more of a tool for advanced users who want to assess specific programs in the safe environment and doesn’t work like a general way of keeping your computer secure.
Sandboxie is a handy tool to test untrustworthy software program without putting your system in danger.
