Sandboxie 5 Free Download and offline installer for Windows 11, 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP. Sandbox-based isolation software for 32and 64-bit Windows NT-based operating systems.
Overview of Sandboxie (Open-source sandboxing program)
Sandboxie is a sandbox-based isolation software for 32and 64-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 local & mapped drives or the windows registry. An isolated virtual environment allows controlled testing of untrusted programs and web surfing.
When you browse the Web, changes occur to your computer system. Some of these might be harmful, like the unsolicited installation of malware. When you use Sandboxie to protect your browsing session, it catches all these changes just as the browser is about to apply them into your computer system. Sandboxie does record these changes on behalf of the browser, but it records them in a special isolated folder, called the sandbox.
Thanks to the testing environment created by Sandboxie, you are free to test programs that you do not trust, which contain risks to your computer system. All files created in the Sandbox are only deleted when the user closes it, although the programs have a special feature (quick restore) to restore them.
