"Excellent product"

September 04, 2009  |  By vhugo2

 |  Version: Sandboxie 3.38

Pros

Not only does sandboxie keep viruses out, but it prevents any changes to your system by internet files. It is like having a computer within a computer and your original set up remains prestine.

Cons

Some Microsoft Office documents downloads (Word or Excel) can only be saved after the document has been closed. This is a very minor annoyance.

Summary

Since Sandboxeie prevents any viruses from entering the computer and since there are essesntially no changes made to the operating system this product keeps my computer new. Imagine that you are going to have a party and you completely recreate your house, have the party and then eliminate your recreated house. Your original house will bear no trace whatsoever of the party that took place the night before. Similarly nothing in your computer will be altered. Ther will be no trace of where you have been. You can even go to hacker sites, see your anti-virus going crazy, delete your sanbox and your computer will be completely unaltered in any way.

"this may be the beginning of a beautiful friendship"

July 23, 2009  |  By pf_lp

 |  Version: Sandboxie 3.38

Pros

its weird i tried it but i never tested it for sure and opened a virus in it,but if wat they say its true then sandboxie kinda bullet proof ur pc from malware files to browsers i really doubt it cause it only take 7mb ram max but im gona test it soon

Cons

none soo far well ... speed bit video accelerator dont work if u use SB in web browsing which is logical cause its kinda shields firefox from any outer interference and ofcourse firefox extensions works

Summary

hmm give it a try its odd that its not popular cause if it does wat it do this may be the ultimate solution for windows xp users cause i think those gets alot of viruses plus the installer dosnt contain a trojan or a virus i scanned thro a registered ESET NOD 32 which i belive is the most accurate antivirus and scanned with Mbam

"Sandboxie contains a virus called Trj/CI.A"

July 10, 2009  |  By ImYourBigDaddy

 |  Version: Sandboxie 3.38

Pros

Would be a good program if it didnt contain a virus. The idea behind the program is a good one. Testing software before you install it on your computer also going to what ever website and not worry about your computer getting infected.

Cons

contains a virus called Trj/CI.A

Summary

I have Panda Global Protection 2009 installed on my computer I right clicked and scanned the install exe of Sandboxie no virus then after I installed Sandboxie I did another Anti Virus scan. This time Panda Global Protection 2009 alerted me that the install exe contained a virus called Trj/CI.A So I did a online scan with Panda same results. I took it a step further and ran a Kaspersky on line scan sure enough Kaspersky found the same virus. I uninstalled Sandboxie but I also had to go to System Restore and turn off System Restore / Monitoring on all drives. By doing this it deletes all restore points on my computer. I have Windows XP Home Edition with two Hard Drives. After I restarted my computer I turned System Restore back on and did another virus scan that took care of the virus. Just to be on the safe side I also did the on line scans and no Trj/CI.A virus from Sandboxie. I sent a message to download.com about the virus Sandboxie contains also one to the author of Sandboxie and I sent the Sandboxie install exe to Panda and Kaspersky waiting to see what they have to say. All I have to say is do not use Sandboxie until they get rid of the virus

"Best of all Hips"

June 01, 2009  |  By victorh2007

 |  Version: Sandboxie 3.38

Pros

Safe, light on resources, easy to use and perfect integration with major web browsers like IE, Firefox and Google Chrome. It's the perfect way to get rid of all malwares.

Cons

It's not freeware.

Summary

I fell safe when I surf the internet using Sandboxie and also when I have to start a program or file I'm not sure it's totally secure.
