    I have a couple .exe files that I don't fully trust. How can I run these files in a way where they cannot make ANY changes to my computer (modify files, registry, ect) without asking me first?

    I've seen ways to do it with other virus scanners, but with Eset I'm not positive how to do this.

    Thanks for your answers in advance!

    PS - I have fully updated Windows 7 and Eset Smart Security.

    if you must run, it use a sandbox approach with something like Sandboxie to isolate it
