Sandboxie (not sure if this helps or not)
Lately I have been visting several GPT websites (sites that have you complete third-party offers and surveys for money) and it struck me that my computer may still be open to several registry changes and what have you. I do several downloads and ad-clicks on these websites while using Sandboxie, so the changes are never permanently there; or so I think. Can anyone tell me what steps to take to ensure that there is nothing lingering on my PC or that there is nothing wrong with it? I'm talking about program files to look for, software that may be used, etc. I just finished a quick scan with MBAM that said my PC is safe but it's better to be safe than sorry.
