Run suspicious or otherwise untrusted programs in a sandbox


A review of Sandboxie by Sven Sørensen

The concept behind this program, Sandboxie, is so simple yet genius. The basic idea behind this program is to serve as a buffer between your PC operating system and software you might not normally trust. What Sandboxie does is polices programs from making changes to your Windows system, effectively only allowing them to run in a sandbox.

Sandboxie is really a sandbox to play around in with various different applications you can't trust and as a reviewer, that means I can run programs on my personal laptop without worrying about the changes some software might otherwise make on my lean-mean-windows-machine.

If you want to keep your system running fast like me, Sandboxie might just be the solution you've never thought of.

A little note to those running a 64-bit version of Windows: While 64-bit is officially supported, there is a very slight lowering in the level of security the program runs. In order to enable fuller protection, enable the Experimental Protection.

Features and highlights


  • Secure Web Browsing: Running your Web browser under the protection of Sandboxie means that all malicious software downloaded by the browser is trapped in the sandbox and can be discarded trivially.
  • 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.
Compability and license

Compatibility with this software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version of Sandboxie may be available from Ronen Tzur.
