    I'm not exactly sure what you are asking, but if you run IE or any other browser sandboxed (right click on IE icon), everything you download will be downloaded to the sandbox. As far as my experience, there is no need to download any other apps or executables to your sandbox if you are just surfing. That is the point of the program. It puts everything in the sandbox, and it's contents can then be deleted. Nothing is written outside the sandbox. If you wish to install a download, you can recover it from the sandbox and install. I found that most programs will not install in the sandbox because of the inability to install drivers. If you want to install programs in a protected environment, you need to look at virtualization apps.

    Also, checkout Leapfrog Software (Bootback) and RollbackRx.
