Download of the Day: Sandboxie 3.46

Trust No Program

Our Download of the Day today is Sandboxie 3.46.

 

Tired of dealing with rogue software, spyware and malware?

 

Spent too many hours removing unsolicited software?

 

Worried about clicking unfamiliar Web links?

 

Introducing Sandboxie: Sandboxie 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: Running your Web browser under the protection of Sandboxie means that all malicious software downloaded by the browser is trapped in the sandbox and can be discarded trivially.
• Enhanced Privacy: Browsing history, cookies, and cached temporary files collected while Web browsing stay in the sandbox and don't leak into Windows.
• Secure E-mail: Viruses and other malicious software that might be hiding in your email can't break out of the sandbox and can't infect your real system.
• Windows Stays Lean: Prevent wear-and-tear in Windows by installing software into an isolated sandbox.
