Sandboxie is a useful piece of software for those who deal with suspicious files such as key generators, cracks and other files which display virus like behavior. For example your anti virus program may detect a key generator as a virus purely because of the keygen’s algorithms and runtime packers are typically used by virus writers. But most of the time these are not viruses and are quite harmless. But how do you know for sure? Sandboxie lets you test these suspicious files in an isolated environment and prevents them from making permanent changes to your system. On other words, it is the perfect testing ground.
Benefits of the Isolated Sandbox
- Secure Web Browsing: Running your Web browser under the protection of Sandboxie means that 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.
- Windows Stays Clean: Prevent wear-and-tear in Windows by installing software into an isolated sandbox.
