    I've written a small utility that I call Sandboxie, it lets a person browse the web more safely and discreetly than would be possible with an out-of-the-box Internet Explorer.

    It works by sandboxing (or quarantaining, or isolating) modified files and registry keys. The files and keys are stored in a temporary folder, yet Internet Explorer is shown a view of the system that merges the sandboxed modifications on top of the actual contents of the system.

    This allows for easy termination and removal of the spyware at the end of the browsing session.

    The software generally works (for me..), but I still consider it a beta version that needs further testing. I would greatly appreciate anyone taking a moment to take a look at it, and maybe even giving it a test drive.

    I would also appreciate comments, suggestions and generally and kind of feedback.

    Thank you very much,
