Default Have you tried...

This Thread I am starting because I just did a search and couldn't find anyone actually discussing this Program Called "Sandboxie"

I use sandboxie and I really liked it.

The basic point of the program is that it creates A block on your hard drive that when You load any program into sandboxie it Isolates it to where that program will not affect anything else. (well it will as long as your running the sandboxie program)

But when Your done using it and close out, It will Wipe out all the stuff that was done while that program was running.

I don't really use it for games and what not, Just mostly for an added layer of security while browsing the web. It doesn't slow down your browsing at all.

Give it a check. Sandboxie - Sandbox software for application isolation and secure Web browsing

Hope this adds some security to your browsing habits. (The website has a great Graphic explanation of how the program works. Better then what I could explain anyways. )

Don't most AV programs use a form of sandbox when they are actively scanning open files/programs?
