Not sure if this is the right place to post this..?

Ive seen some thing called '' Sandboxie '' ( Sandboxie allows you to run your browser, or any other program, so that all changes that result from the usage are kept in a sandbox environment, which can then be deleted later --
If you use Windows 2000 or later my top recommendation for safe browsing is a free program called Sandboxie [1] that creates a special contained "sandbox" environment on your PC. While browsing within the virtual sandbox provided by Sandboxie you are totally corralled off from other parts of your PC. So any files you download are isolated to the sandbox. Similarly, any programs that are executed only do so within the sandbox and have no access to your normal files, the Windows operating system or any other part of your PC.


has any one used this ..? if so can you please comment on it ...?

Thanks ......... mypenry

No I have not used it. But a quick google gets widely diverse results as to version and cost. But generally very favorable reviews. Here are the first two results I got. There are more, by the way.

:thumbsup: Download.com has it as version 1.85 30 day trial and $20.00 USD to buy.

:flowers: Softpedia.com has it as version 2.42 Freeware

I have never heard of it either but due to the way it handles data, I'd be sure it's not running when working with other programs. You could accidently lose a project you may have spent hours on. :thumbsup:
