Sandboxie 5.20


Run programs in a sandbox to prevent malware from making permanent changes to your PC.

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.

When you browse the Web, changes occur to your computer system. Some harmless, like recording the addresses of Web sites you have visited, so the browser can help you complete a Web address that you type in. Some more harmful, like the unsolicited installation of malware. When you use Sandboxie to protect your browsing session, it catches all these changes just as the browser is about to apply them into your computer system. Sandboxie does record these changes on behalf of the browser, but it records them in a special isolated folder, called the sandbox. Thus, with Sandboxie, you can browse the Web securely while still keeping all your browser's functionality for active and dynamic content, such as Javascript and ActiveX. All undesired side effects, including the removal of malware, can be easily undone.

Changes in Sandboxie 5.20:

  • Fixed several Chrome crashes in Win 10.
  • Fixed auto-recovery dialog failure to popup in Win 10-CU.
  • Firefox H264 video decoder now works.
  • Creation of IE embedded application objects are no longer blocked by default (which began in 5.18). If IE is your default browser, it is being forced, and hyperlinks in MS Office are not working, you can use new option BlockIEEmbedding=y.
