Sandboxie (32-bit & 64-bit) v5.27.2 Beta

Vista / Win10 / Win2k / Win7 / Win8 / WinXP
Sandboxie creates a transient storage between your programs and your hard drive. It allows programs to read data from the hard drive but when they try to write something back, the data is captured to sandboxie's transient storage (sandbox).

When you throw away the sandbox, everything that is written to it will be lost. This is extremely useful when you try out suspicious software. If the software contains malware or you just don't like it, just throw away the sandbox and the program disappears completely. In case you do like it, just install it again outside the sandbox. Same thing goes for web browsers. Use sandboxie to intercept your browser's disc activity, throw away the sandbox and all your recent activity disappears, including cache, history etc. Sandboxie intercepts changes to both your files and registry settings, making it virtually impossible for any software to reach outside the sandbox.

Windows 2000 users may need to install GDIPLUS.DLL if you don't already have it.

Sandboxie v4.04

This is NOT freeware. Check the website for more info.

Sandboxie v3.42

I find this software very good and easy to use. On another topic, this is why I refuse to use a 64 bit operating system. It is hard to find software that will do 64 bit. I run 32 bit Vista home premium with 4 gigs of Ram. It will run everything and anything I throw at it. No saying, nice software, but it's not for 64 bit. Something to be said for 32 bit.

Sandboxie v3.39.13 Beta

No 64bit support for XP and upwards. With the number of 64bit machines increasing daily this app will soon be useless. Have you tried to buy a 32bit processor lately?

Sandboxie v3.38

Very Very useful, and highly recommended.
