Well this is a gem I've completely overlooked. Awesome idea and an instant install.

Wow, from 2007 then jump to Dec 2011 and once again a holy thread revival! Does anyone really have a need for something like this? Thank god I don't!

I use it for ALL my web browsing. ALL my web Browsers get sandboxed while on the internet.

Well if you used Microsoft Security Essentials you would be safe and wouldn't have to worry about running your browser sandboxed! :p

I have been using Sandboxie for a while and it's awesome! Great for opening files you're unsure of.


Yup just what I've been looking for actually!

People send me files and apps that I'm not certain about and want to make sure they're at least safe so this is helping a lot!

The comment above about MSE being unsafe is a little meh though, MSE does a damn fine job of stopping online attacks as I have witnessed its protection first hand but a proper sandboxed environment is second to none.
