Sandboxie is for anyone interested in protecting their privacy and protecting their computers from viruses and other threats. Sandboxie uses a smart trick to keep you safe! The trick is to run programs in an isolated part of your disk space that you can safely delete later, this ensures that the program or websites will not be able to make changes to your computer.

How to use Sandboxie

After installation, you will be prompted to watch a short tutorial on how to use Sandboxie, which we highly recommend. 

In short to open any program (for example your web browser) in the sandbox use your right mouse button and click on it and choose "Run Sandboxed" which will force the program to run in the virtual environment we talked about earlier.

When you are done using the sandboxed program you can decide whether to keep the data associated with it by moving them out of the sandbox or delete them, you can do this by locating the Sandboxie icon in the tray and right-click on it select DeafultBox then click on "Delete Contents".
