Think of your PC as a piece of paper. Every program you run writes on the paper. When you run your browser, it writes on the paper about every site you visited. And any malware you come across will usually try to write itself into the paper.

Traditional privacy and anti-malware software try to locate and erase any writings they think you wouldn't want on the paper. Most of the times they get it right. But first the makers of these solutions must teach the solution what to look for on the paper, and also how to erase it safely.

On the other hand, the Sandboxie sandbox works like a transparency layer placed over the paper. Programs write on the transparency layer and to them it looks like the real paper. When you delete the sandbox, it's like removing the transparency layer, the unchanged, real paper is revealed.

OMG did you even look at the pretty graph thing?

Seriously though what exactly is this supposed to do? Help get the maximum amount of storage from our drives?

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

If you're worried about security or anything like that, this basically runs questionable applications in their own special area, completely seperate from the rest of the system. If you want to browse in privacy, install your favorite browser with Sandboxie, and then annihilate it when you're finished.

i did read it and from what i gather its some kind of computing by proxy program....and the only benifit i see coming from it is slowing down your system and causing file system errors when aplications try to run... but thats just me

i just proved myself right

Sounds like an interesting idea, although I don't really believe it would do more than a regular av can do and either way how often does someone get malware or viruses? last time I remember getting a viruses i did it myself to test something and everything else were tracking cookies which a disk clean up and ccleaner couldn't fix so i removed ad-aware and other things i had. What I've noticed is all these programs or ideas for prevention work for a period of time or not at all and do nothing more than add to your system usage kind of like spywareblaster.

if you read most of those posts they are solved and often user error.
i know a few people that run it and love it and it was recomended by a few members here as well.

if you dont like the idea behind the software that is fine, but please do not drag it in here.

I use this software religiously for questionable apps and addons I come across. When running applications sandboxed, they do indeed run slower, but that's a small price to pay for a 99% protection guarantee.

Great program, I recommended it for here. The only way to get infected while sandboxed is if you save a file to the real HDD or their is a vulnerability in Sandboxie. And this guy updates his software. Only draw back is the no 64 bit compatibility.
