"Secures the horrid Internet Explorer"

April 01, 2010  |  By jordanLBottoms

 |  Version: Sandboxie 3.44

Pros

Secures your browsers or whatever programs you want. I use this for my malware removal training at www.geekstogo.com University. Keeps my system clean when assisting someone who is infected. Also good for experimenting with infected items.

Cons

No cons...

"Simple, quick way to browse securely-good for newbies"

March 14, 2010  |  By Fxygrl17

 |  Version: Sandboxie 3.44

Pros

I ran computer cleanup utilities before and after using Sandboxie and couldn't believe the difference in results. Before using, hundreds of privacy items to cleanup (cookies etc) and other items. After using Sandboxie, hardly anything to clean up.

Cons

I've had a hard time getting already installed programs to run within Sandboxie (different error messages), but I'm not so sure this is a problem within Sandboxie; it's most likely firewall issues since it hooks in system to run programs.

Summary

I like the easy way of browsing especially since I've had viruses in the past and I know if this happens again, I can just delete the Sandbox and they're gone, and not involving the rest of my computer. i've always wanted to try virturalization and this is the way to do it that's simple and easy to understand for me as I'm relatively new to this type of thing. I've yet to explore some of the features but if nothing but for the secure browsing, I would highly recommend this program to anyone, especially anyone new to computers. Will definitely be using this program for trying new programs so i don't get my registry all junked up needlessly.

"Great way to defend your computer from viruses."

February 24, 2010  |  By firstmagnitude2001

 |  Version: Sandboxie 3.44

Pros

I had a nasty little trojan telling me I need to subscribe to a particular virus program. I went to the sandboxie menu and told it to delete contents. No more trojan! Excellent program!!

Cons

Nothing to complain about. One of the most essential program for your computer.

Summary

This program is very easy to use. I feel comfortable surfing the web because sandboxie will keep the viruses isolated from the rest of the computer. Go to there website to see how it works.

"Excellent Browsing Security."

February 09, 2010  |  By Perkin

 |  Version: Sandboxie 3.44

Pros

Great for safe surfing,and prevention of infection from downloads.

Cons

Not the easiest software to understand . Take the trouble to thoroughly read the information provided if you are a non technical user as I am.
Well worth persevering to understand and use correctly for the advantages gained in
improving security.

Summary

Easy enough and clear to run,and see the indicators that you are running in the Sandboxed environment.
No problems experienced using it on Windows 7.
