Windows 7/8/10/Server 2003/Vista/XP / Shareware / 82,820 downloads

Sandboxie allows you to run your browser, or any other program, so that all changes that result from the usage are kept in a sandbox environment, which can then be deleted later. This allows you to remove traces of your Internet or PC activities, as well as reverse any changes to your Favorites, home page, registry and more. Even files that were downloaded during a sandbox session will be wiped after the sandbox is cleared. The program runs in the system tray and if you want to start a sandboxed session, simply launch your browser, or any other program via the tray icon, rather than the regular way.

This download is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows.

    NOW, It's time to TEST the program...

    This probably superb program, I don't know.. but when I try to sandboxing "Readon TV Movie Radio Player" program, the sandbox program freezed...

    What a shame!... 3 stars from me. If they fixed it, I will give it 5 or even 10 stars!!!.

    It's been nearly 2 years since Ronen supported SBIE; it's now owned by Invincia. Both Alan and Curt has done an excellent job of maintaining Ronen's cool protection program so thanks again to the folks at Invincia. Just installed 4.18 for my WinXP VM; still works great. :)

    @Hall9000 My preferred program to avoid problems you described is Shadow Defender. Although not free it more than makes up for the cost by being low maintenance. Deep Freeze was my favorite but they have an annual fee now. The "free" programs will "eat up" your disk space and some change your MBR. Although Shadow Defender does take up a small amount they seem to have some algorithm that prevents disk usage from becoming excessive. Back to Sandboxie ... I'm glad I paid to have use of all its features and can't imagine being without it. One minor problem is it seems to cause my explorer to crash every now and then when I try to invoke a sandbox on my 64-bit system (Win 7). Perhaps a conflict with one of the other utilities/drivers/programs running in the background. I can have a few others running but when I get ready to run a new instance of Firefox in a sandbox I get a message that explorer has crashed and lose all my open explorer windows. Everything else stays open but the explorers that were open are all gone and 1 or 2 utility programs also are gone (one is to show current month calendar when I hover mouse cursor over clock). Not a major problem for me but a bit annoying.
