run programs in a sandbox Sandboxie allows you to run your browser, or any other program, so that all changes that result from the usage are kept in a sandbox environment, which can then be deleted later. This allows you to remove traces of your internet or PC activities, as well as reverse any changes to your Favorites, home page, registry and more. Even files that were downloaded during a sandbox session will be wiped after the sandbox is cleared. Sandboxie runs in the system tray and if you want to start a sandboxed session, simply launch your browser, or any other program via the tray icon, rather than the regular way. Copyright

Trial Limitations: Registration is optional. Nag screen after 30 days.

Allows browser to save unsecure bookmarks 2 stars by snap844 Jul 09, 2016 (Read all my 4 reviews)
I found that browser bookmarks made in sandbox mode remain after exiting, unlike downloaded files which must be (according to the ad) explicitly imported to the "real world". The leftover bookmarks could allow one to inadvertently access a website accessed previously only in sandbox mode. It also raises the question of what else might be saved by the website visited, that might survive after exiting the sandbox. show Review details
Essential 5 stars by zahnc1 Mar 02, 2009 (Read all my 3 reviews)
I almost never run new programs or installations without it. For most setup programs, right-click and select "Run Sandboxed" to install, then copy that folder from the Sandbox to anywhere on your HD to turn it into a stand-alone/portable program. Prevents me from having to constantly back-up and restore the registry. Many thanks to you, Tzuk. show Review details
Incredibly useful 5 stars by CarbonDudeoxide Jan 23, 2009 (Read all my 26 reviews)
Very useful program when trying out suspicious programs or trial software. Whatever you run through Sandboxie is run in a sandboxed environment. To give you an example of how effective this is, if you install a trial software and the trial runs out, you can clear the Sandbox and reinstall the trial as if you had never done so in the past. Perfect tool for testing and 'hiding all traces'. Also, as far as I can tell, the only limitation I know of between the full version and the free trial is that, for the trial, you have to wait 5 seconds before starting the program. That's it! show Review details
