    Hi, just installed the paid version of Sandboxie but I could do with a bit of assistance with the Sandboxie control settings, i.e. what to allow, what not to allow and general configurations for safe browsing.

    The only thing I have done at the moment is forced IE asnd Update Checker to start in the default Sandbox

    Any replies would be gratefully appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Andy

    Hi, and well done with installing the paid version, you won't regret it.

    I would point you out to two threads here to start off:
    New to sandboxie?
    Are the default configurations in Sandboxie good enough?

    If you want to know more after reading those threads, why don't you got to > Search > Advanced search > select "search titles only" > insert "sandboxie" and you will get many threads, some dealing with Sandboxie and specific apps.

    Congratulations AMD. I suggest that you use Sandboxie on default settings for a while, that way you ll be able to tell how things work differently in the sandbox once you start using restrictions. I see many people restricting their sandboxes when they first star using the program and that can lead to confusion.
    Read sandboxies Help topics, in there you ll find answer to many of the questions that you might have on SBIE.

    Setting the sandbox to keep bookmarks is something that you might want to do right away.

    Sandboxie best weapon is deleting the sandbox on closing.

    To save files, you can use either Quick recovery or inmediate recovery.

    If I was starting using SBIE, those are really the only changes that I would do right away. As you go, create sandboxes for most of the programs that you use often, including your EMail client, browsers, PDF Reader, Office programs. You can do the same for your downloads folder, USB drives and CD/DVD dives.

    Then, restrict each sandbox according to the program and/or purpose. In each sandbox, restrict the ´programs that are allowed to Start/Run and connect to the internet. For example, in the PDF sandbox you might want to only allow the Reader to run and forbid all program to connect.
