The Sandboxie application comes in handy when dealing with unknown files and applications.
Sandboxie is a revolutionary technology which provides an extra edge to the existing applications that indulge in the protection of your system by dealing with unknown threats and possible cyberattacks from unrecognized sources.
Developed by Sandboxie Holdings LLC, it creates an isolated virtual drive in the system where all the unknown programs are run so that these unknown programs cannot make any changes to your system. It creates a layer on the main hard disk so that the program cannot touch the hard disk and cause any possible damages. You can run all the major programs using this program, from major web browser and your email to most of the MS Office programs and games etc.
Secure Web Browsing
This application has earned the trust of its existing customers when it comes to safe browsing as it increases the secrecy of your private files. All the browsing history, cookies and all the temporary files which are downloaded during the browsing stored in the isolated Sandbox cannot enter into the Windows registry and even the the temporary files are deleted once you shut down the sandbox. Thus, the program works as a shield for the operating system.
Easy to install and configure, after you install Sandboxie, all you need to do is reboot the system into safe mode after installing all the essential drivers. Then, launch a Sandbox enabled web browser. It will run simultaneously in the normal browsing session and all the downloaded and installed files will be saved or stored in the application without touching or affecting your system.
Clearing Sandboxie After Testing
Run and test the saved unknown apps in the Sandboxie window without risking your system from any malicious attacks. After testing the unknown files, you can clear the Sandbox by “Delete Content” option. This will delete all the downloaded files, apps and clear all the sandboxed history. If you find any file useful and safe then you can move to your system from Sandboxie by “Quick Recovery” option. This will move the file from Sandboxie and function like other downloaded files.
It has added new features like Block Network Files. This feature blocks all the applications saved in Sandboxie to read the network files and programs. But you can open the individual files and programs for reading and writing by normal Resource Access settings.
