    I noticed a lot of people put "Sandboxie" as a setup item.

    But, can some of you please explain how you use it? Do you use it just for your browser? Do you have it configured to run ALL programs in sandboxes?

    Just interested to hear how it is used!

    Thanks

    I use it only for my browsers. Other apps and system are protected by MD.

    Hi Joe, sandboxing the browser is probably how most people start using the program, thats what I did. A little later I also started running my Outlook Express in a sandbox and now, I run every program that I regularly use in a sandbox. For me, there's no reason not to run most programs sandboxed.

    I been using SBIE for over 3 years, my setup for the last year and a half consist of SBIE, NoScript and Windows firewall. Nothing that looks, smells, sounds, resembles, etc like malware has come close. Thats the power of Sandboxie and a little brain work on my part.

    So, start running your browser in a sandbox and after a while, you ll find other ways of using SBIE to your benefit, based on YOUR needs.

    All internet-facing apps are forced into a sandbox on my computers.
    That would be Chrome, Outlook, Media Player and Foxit Reader.

    Bo is 100% correct (Bo knows!) about starting with a browser, then adding sandboxes as you get comfortable and see the need and learn the program.

    Thanks for the replies -- I've downloaded it and been playing with it. Quite intriguing.

    It also seems to have some privacy uses too... I particularly like how I can deny file access to certain folders and hard drives, for example. I've always worried about a java or hijacked extension in a browser allowing an intruder to download business documents, etc from my machine.

    It appears that sandboxie can make that fear a thing of the past...

    Yes, blocking personal/business files and folders works very nice.

    I think you are going to like SBIE.:)
