Tired of dealing with rogue software, spyware and malware? Tired of spending countless hours removing unsolicited software? Try Sandboxie.
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 program to the hard disk via write operations.
For example, if you run the Freecell program to play a game, it starts by reading the previously recorded statistics, displaying and altering them as you play the game, and finally writing them back to disk for future reference.
Sandboxie changes the rules such that write operations do not make it back to your hard disk.
Sandboxie can be installed on Microsoft Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 7; 32-bit only
Sandboxie is provided free of any charges for non-commercial use only.
