What the heck is Sandboxie?
Folks, I would not live without Sandboxie. With Sandboxie installed on your PC you can run applications, like your web browser, in an isolated “protected” space on your PC. For example, occasionally I will run my web browser (e.g. Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer) in Sandboxie. As a result, if I would happen to come in contact with any malware while on the internet, my PC would be protected because I was running my browser within Sandboxie. Basically any application you run in the sandbox, stays in the sandbox. It is a great utility to have in place for testing software.
I had a friend recently who became obsessed with playing an online game on a site that he claimed was messing with his PC. Of course I tried to tell him to move on; however, I knew that would not happen. Instead, I had him run his browser within Sandboxie. Any malicious or suspicious content, from that point on, that was hitting his PC, remained in the Sandbox.
I’m telling you, from a tech and security standpoint, this is great software. When I saw TechPaul’s post on this giveaway, I jumped right on it with the hope I would be lucky enough to get one of those lifetime licenses.
