Sandboxie Computer Protection

Sandboxie computer protection software to guard against viruses, spyware, malware, and anything else hackers can design

If you spend alot of your time using the internet for work or pleasure, you’ll know computer virus’s and spyware are at constant battle with your anti-virus software, even downloading tool bars or add-ons can be a pain to get rid of if you decide not to keep them. Enter Sandboxie, a great piece of free software that not only protects your systems drive but allows you to completely delete anything you have installed or added to you PC with a click of the mouse.

In computer security, a sandbox is a security mechanism for safely running programs, hence the name sandboxie, a sandbox provides a tightly-controlled set of resources for guest programs to run in, such as scratchspace on disk and memory. Sandboxie incorporates this technology by creating a sandbox as a temporary drive for all data transferal.


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 program to the hard disk via write operations. With Sandboxie running all data is intercepted in the sandbox, data then flows in both directions between the program and the sand box, leaving your permanent drive free from read and write operations.

Sandboxie intercepts all changes to both your files and registry settings, making it virtually impossible for any software to reach outside the sandbox. Even browser items are intercepted, so when you throw away the sandbox, all the history records and other side-effects of your browsing disappear as well.

This great piece of software is free so trying it out should not be a problem, however if you find it makes your Web experience that much safer, you are encouraged to register the program for a small fee.

  1. maybe Toshiba has or will soon improve this…

    All that said, the rest of the machine is superb. The keyboard is great, truly a pleasure to use – especially when compared to other netbooks.

    The battery life is excellent (my reason for purchasing), and is every bit of 8-9 hours when used frugally. With WiFi and Bluetooth turned on and heavy use, it’s closer to 6-7 – still far above the best.

    The processor is up to everything I’ve thrown at it, though I do keep in mind it’s a netbook not a speed machine. For all the basics (office apps, videos, internet, basic photo viewing and light editing, it’s perfect and doesn’t skip a beat or slow me down.

    The speaker is a bit under-sized, but I expected that with a machine designed for small size and light weight, and I have headphones that work great.

    The total package seems very rugged. The outside case is solid, and the keyboard doesn’t flex a bit. The battery kind of sticks out in the back, which may beco

  2. That’s an ingenious way of thkiinng about it.
