Sandboxie Plus is a sandbox-based isolation software for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows NT-based operating systems. It is being developed by David Xanatos since it became open source, before that it was developed by Sophos (which acquired it from Invincea, which acquired it earlier from the original author Ronen Tzur).

It creates a sandbox-like isolated operating environment in which applications can be run or installed without permanently modifying the local or mapped drive. An isolated virtual environment allows controlled testing of untrusted programs and web surfing.

Since the Open Sourcing Sandboxie is being released in two flavors the classical build with an MFC-based UI and a plus build that incorporates new features and an entirely new Q’t based UI. All newly added features target the plus branch but often can be utilized in the classical edition by manually editing the sandboxie.ini file.

Benefits of the Isolated Sandbox Plus:

Secure Web Browsing
Running your Web navigator under the protection of Sandboxie Plus for Windows PC means that all malicious software downloaded by the browser is trapped in the tool and can be discarded trivially.

Enhanced Privacy
Browsing history, cookies, and cached temporary files collected while internet browsing stays in the program and don't leak into Windows.

Secure E-mail
Viruses and other malicious software that might be hiding in your email can't break out of the app and can't infect your real system.

Windows Stays Lean
Prevent wear-and-tear in Windows by installing software into an isolated sandbox.

The full archived classical Sandboxie documentation can be found through the Support Page Index, or you can start directly with the Help Topics overview.
