SANDBOXIE is a proprietary sandbox-based isolation program developed
by Ronen Tzur, for 32-bit Windows NT-based operating systems. It
creates a sandbox-like isolated operating environment in which
applications can be run or installed without permanently modifying the
local or mapped drive. An isolated virtual environment allows
controlled testing of untrusted programs and web surfing.Sandboxie
runs your programs in an isolated space which prevents them from
making permanent changes to other programs and data in your computer.
When you run a program on your computer, data flows from the hard disk
to the program via read operations. The data is then processed and
displayed, and finally flows back from the progam to the hard disk via
write operations. Sandboxie changes the rules such that write
operations do not make it back to your hard disk.
� Intercept changes to both your files and registry settings,
making it virtually impossible for any software to reach outside the
� Traps cached browser items into the sandbox as a by-product of
normal operation, so when you throw away the sandbox, all the history
records and other side-effects of your browsing disappear as well.
BENEFITS OF THE ISOLATED SANDBOX:
� Secure Web Browsing: Running your Web browser under the
by the browser is trapped in the sandbox and can be discarded
� Enhanced Privacy: Browsing history, cookies, and cached
temporary files collected while Web browsing stay in the sandbox and
don't leak into Windows.
� Secure E-mail: Viruses and other malicious software that might
be hiding in your email can't break out of the sandbox and can't
infect your real system.
� Windows Stays Lean: Prevent wear-and-tear in Windows by
installing software into an isolated sandbox.
