You would also come across them if you have to crack a program using keygen or patches which are widely available on the internet.
I download programs a lot and I also like to try out and discover new and rare programs. Many times, I also have to get the crack of some program because I don't want to buy the product serial key/activation key ;-)
Sandboxie is a program that can keep your PC safe from virus attacks through:
- Software programs
- Unfamiliar web links
What is Sandbox?Sandbox(ing) is a computer security mechanism for separating running programs. It is also often used to execute untested code or untrusted programs from unverified third-parties.
The sandbox typically provides a tightly-controlled set of resources for guest programs to run in, such as scratch space on disk and memory. Network access, the ability to inspect the host system or read from input devices are usually disallowed or heavily restricted.
This provides you with a safe environment to run any program or access any network resource without fear of compromising your computer's security
The Sandboxie Program
It runs your programs in an isolated space which prevents them from making permanent changes to other programs and data in your computer.
Benefits of the Isolated Sandbox
- Secure Web Browsing: Any malicious software is trapped in the sandbox and can be easily discarded
- Secure E-mail: Viruses in your email cannot break out to infect your system
- Prevent wear and tear in Windows by installing software into an isolated sandbox
Now your can run any virus infected program that you have.
You can also run that trojan inefcted keygen software you just downloaded that your antivirus program won't allow you to run.
And now you can visit any website without infecting your PC.
