What are people saying about Sandboxie Personal

Cadillakin (no last name - just like Batman) This app IS the best protection you can provide for you and your family. Not invulnerable, but nearly so. A breeze to configure too. Just add your browsers to the sandbox and away you go.. If you happen to click on the wrong site and pick up some kind of malware, just close your browser, or empty your sandbox..

Voila! Malware is gone..

Fran Harter I am looking forward to purchasing this, as soon as it becomes available on Bitsdujour.

The vendor's website says this, regarding the "personal (home user)" licenses:
.........does permit you to use Sandboxie on any number of computers that you personally own; .....

This sounds extremely generous, on behalf of the Sandboxie folks.

Will this bitsdujour offer have this same type of licensing?
[any number of PCs in your home]?
Jan 11 2009 at 8:58am Copy Link
Cadillakin (no last name) Yes Fran, the terms on the website are the terms of your licensing agreement... at least that's how I understand it. Visit the Sandboxie forum if you need any help..
Jan 11 2009 at 5:37pm Copy Link
Roger Thomasson Fran, yes, Bits du Jour licenses are identical to regular, un-discounted licenses.

Jan 13 2009 at 4:00am Copy Link
Steve Clark Pretty good program overall. The only thing I don't like about it is when my browsers are sandboxed it takes them forever to startup. Hopefuly that will get improved in one of the next releases.

Kathy Lilly Why when I click Buy Now does it show the price as 14.56 instead of the 14.14 advertised?
Jan 14 2009 at 10:01pm Copy Link
Ronen Tzur from Sandboxie Kathy, the price base of Sandboxie is in Euro, and there is a small difference in the currency exchange rate since the moment we have planned the promotion. We have updated now the pricing so it reflects the exact discounted amount.

J. Moreno How does Sandboxie differ from Power Shadow. With Power Shadow, if you put the computer into "shadow mode," you can go to dangerous websites or install questionable software to try out, and as soon as you reboot the computer, all traces are gone. The one bad thing is that if you want to know how a piece of software will affect the boot process or whether it will slow down the computer after you've rebooted, you can't tell with Power Shadow. Is that true as well of Sandboxie? Does Sandboxie offer advantages over Power Shadow?
Jan 15 2009 at 3:09am Copy Link
Jay G. Cyndi, PowerShadow is like Faronics Deep Freeze or Returnil where the entire system drive is "virtualized" or sandboxed, meaning while they're on, all the changes to the system drive are virtualized and erased on reboot. Not only can't you install software that requires a reboot, updating a program typically requires rebooting the PC, having the sandboxer off, then running the update. Likewise, personal documents have to be saved to something other than the system drive/partition before a reboot, or they'll be lost forever.

With Sandboxie, only the programs that you run inside it are sandboxed, meaning that you can run the majority of your programs unsandboxed, and only run potentially vunerable programs (web browsers) or questionable programs inside the sandbox. So you can update Windows and your AV program running outside Sandboxie, make and save documents, but run your web browser within Sandboxie so that any potential malware that it is attacked by is stuck inside the sandbox.

Resetting in Sandboxie is different too, since to clear out a sandbox you usually just have to close all the programs running inside of it and then "delete contents." Everything inside the sandbox is erased, no reboot required.

Sandboxie also allows you to "recover" files that are sandboxed. So say you download a file in your sandboxed web browser, Sandboxie will give you the option of copying the file out of the sandbox.

Sandbox contents also stay there until manual erasure, even after a reboot. This can be a good thing, as you can test software over a period of time within the sandbox. However, since the erasure isn't automatic, if a piece of malware infects the sandbox, it stays in there until you remember to clear the sandbox, making protection a bit less "automatic" than hard drive virtualizers like Power Shadow.

Sandboxie doesn't support driver installs, so any program that installs a driver can't be installed withing Sandboxie, while they may be able to be installed with a hard drive virtualizer activated.

There is a freeware version of Sandboxie available on the publishers site if you want to try it out.
Jan 15 2009 at 3:44am Copy Link
Jay G. Some additional notes:

Since with Sandboxie you're going to be running a mix of sandboxed and non-sandboxed programs at once, Sandboxie adds [#] brackets to the titles of windows running sandboxed. For example, a sandboxed Firefox will show at the top of it's window the title: [#] Mozilla Firefox [#] .

Also, you have to explicitly run programs within Sandboxie in order for them to be sandboxed. To do this, you either start them from within Sandboxie Control, or right-click on the program and select "run sandboxed". Programs installed inside Sandboxie can only be run sandboxed. The personal license offered here allows you to force certain programs to always run sandboxed, even if you don't do the steps above and try to run it like normal.

Finally, you can create multiple sandboxes in Sandboxie and run different applications in each. For example, you can run your web browser in one, then install a program into its own sandbox. That way you can erase one sandbox without affecting the program in the other sandbox. The freeware version limits you to only using one sandbox at a time, but the personal license lets you use as multiple sandboxes at once.

Oct 20 2009 at 12:59pm Copy Link
Bob S Roger - in view of the lapse in communications, I would suggest that you extend this offer and give the developer time to respond to the questions above.
Oct 20 2009 at 3:54pm Copy Link
M B Note that while the developer might not have been able to address questions here, visit Sandboxie's forum - - and see how very responsive he is there (user name tzuk).
Oct 20 2009 at 4:19pm Copy Link
mz m @ Ras DeBol - the personal license is good for a lifetime, the updates are free, and the program can be installed on ALL the computers that you own (not limited to one PC). Sandboxie is not antivirus...although antivirus programs can detect what happens in the sandboxed environment. To be clear, you could literally run a virus in the sandbox, the point being, it can't get out to infect the "real" system even though it's running and active, and terminating the program and deleting the contents of the sandbox completely removes the virus. Hope that's clear?

@ John Stevenson - a virtual machine includes it's own complete operating system. Sandboxie does not. Sandboxie creates a sandboxed environment inside an existing operating system and isolates any programs running in the sandbox from getting out or making changes to the real system. See the website for further details.

@ pereh - (1) yes. (2) not sure...the answer used to be no, but it was requested and discussed at some point, and so there might now be a way...I haven't followed the threads over at the Sandboxie forums lately and so just don't know.

john hagel Found nothing on BDJ or at Sandboxie about the no-go problem with Vista 64, until the installer rejected me. Then googled for Sandboxie and Vista 64 - and there is was. But already bought and paid for it. Will it work with win 7 - yes, probably, maybe, not on your life buddy? Have not decided to buy that just checking if I have a chance to get something useful, or just screwed.
Oct 20 2009 at 5:38pm Copy Link
A G John H, if you "found nothing", you must have not checked the FAQ or download page at Still, there are clearly-posted links at both BDJ and to "try before you buy", hard to imagine why you didn't given a 64-bit system. As for Win7, the app is being developed for it, see the sandboxie forums. Good luck.

Nico Westerdale @ Mr Woojoo

I'm sorry that you missed the Sandboxie promotion, but we are actually quite clear about when a deal will expire:

Besides the 'About' section, note that we have an active clock in the upper right of an underway promotion ticking down the hours, minutes, and seconds until the deal is over.

If you have a way we can be more explicit, I'm happy to hear it ;-)

BitsDuJour Admin - Oct 21 2009 at 1:42am Copy Link
Mr WooJoo @ Nico

Having never used BDJ before, I was not aware that there was a clock. Had I actually checked the page I suppose I would have seen it. However I came from a forum where someone had posted the sale and the date, so I just followed it both days before the sale date and evidentily after the clock expired. So the clock did not do much good I am afraid under those circumstances.

Read the about? lol, I suppose one should also read terms and conditions too? Seriously, yes, I should have read them. But I read elsewhere that really all you needed to do was follow the link, which takes you to SB website anyway, which is where the purchasing is made.

As someone who already has an SB license, this was a way to pick up another one at a discount. As someone who has never used BDJ, perhaps just a quick little note on upcoming items (or any item) that simply says the time of day is not based on your time most likely. That one little feature would have clued me in to check around for this issue.

Ah well, maybe next time.

S B Roger's personally vouching for Sandboxie  *really* says a lot.

Sandboxie now supports 64-bit Windows; for a while, there was doubt about whether that made sense to develop. 

I'm assuming that the new Sandboxie can substantially add to the security of Windows 7 x64.

With that assumption, I'm personally back in with Sandboxie.

Van Swofford I got the lifetime license the last time it was offered here.  It was a super deal, and a great piece of software.  I'm not sure I'd ever want to buy a 12 month license for software, though.  In fact, this is the first time I recall encountering that.

C Reddy What does " Licensed per user for non-concurrent use only, allowing transfer of a license to another owned computer " mean? When I switch computers, does one have to transfer license? This is a very useful piece of software--count me in for a longer term license. At one extreme, we have a life-time license and at the end a one-year license per computer. Something in between would be nice.

Doug Atkinson I would love to use Sandboxie, but their licensing scheme doesn't fit my situation. I want to use Sandboxie on my work PC, but only need one copy. The Commercial license doesn't allow for a single copy (2 minimum), and the personal license doesn't allow for use in a work environment. I don't really want to pay $77 (US) just to have one copy sit unused... What is the normal use of the "One Year Home License"? It is _ 26 Euros while the lifetime license is _ 29 Euros (normally). Even the website states for the one year home license "Cannot be upgraded to a lifetime license.  You probably want the  lifetime license instead." I've only heard good things about Sandboxie, though, for those of you who want to use it at home. $12.50 to support the company for a year seems like a pretty good deal.

Michael K This offer allows 1 year of use. Sandboxie also have a lifetime option at around $40 - Could, BitsDuJour and the developer please review this 1 year use offer and make it the lifetime option instead or at least include it as an option to purchase.

Based on my reckoning, applying the 62% discount means the cost would be around double this offer at $15.50 but then allow lifetime use rather than just 1 year. Thanks

Roger Thomasson Folks, the Sandboxie developer has chosen not to discount the lifetime license at this time. Today's promotion is for the one year license only. End of story.

As Patrick J. says, if you want to purchase the lifetime license _29 is still a very reasonable price for such powerful software.

Michael K I've looked at the link and and while you may be correct, the comment you refer to was dated last September.

Things can change in that time and before this dialogue, the developer may have considered including an option for the lifetime license in the offer but I suspect now any opportunity of that may well be be lost.

Personally I would have preferred to have heard it from the developer in the first place which no doubt we will now.

a a The last time this was offered on BDJ, it was only for the 1 year licence. However, Sandboxie with lifetime upgrades has been offered in the past (possibly more than once), and that was when the full price was cheaper than it is now.

This is good software, but I'm with some of the other posters here in that I'll only buy with a lifetime licence and a BDJ discount. Hoping the lifetime upgrades offer can be arranged in the not too distant future on BDJ.
May 18 2011 at 6:05am Copy Link
Pedro Laurent I am not defending the developer but at 29 Euros for lifetime license is a reasonable price, I do not intend to buy this program during the bitsdujour promotion since I already own a license which I bought full price. I fully agree with the developer not to discount the lifetime license. But I think the 1 year support for the promotion is too short; make it 2 years support at least.

Exolon Miner I don't understand this 'Live Time vs. 1 Year' discussion.

The regular price for a Live Time Licence is pretty good as well as the BDJ deal.

If you don't know if you want to use Sandboxie longer than 1 or 2 years, so you can buy at BDJ (for less than 3 cents a day)

If you are pretty sure you'll frequently use the tool over the next 5 years, buy the Live Time Licence.
May 19 2011 at 10:04pm Copy Link
Ferdinand Hello everyone - More and more software developers are going the 'lifetime' way as standard. As I have spent a fortune on one year licenses I am more enticed to buy any software when there is a lifetime license. I have at least 10 programs on my PC that I purchased largely because of that value add!
May 19 2011 at 11:07pm Copy Link
Frank Stephens I'm sick of the sense of entitlement which so many BDJ users have. "I want this software for almost free--and lifetime upgrades." While I think that time-limited software is a bad deal for users, it's also true that developers can't stay in business with lifetime upgrades. Besides, they have an easy out, they just add a couple of features and give it a new name. Presto, no more lifetime upgrades.
May 20 2011 at 9:04pm Copy Link
Trucker I think the deal is good no matter if it is a 1-year licens or a life time licens. Why ?
If you buy in a store then YOU have to wait until THEY decide to give you a discount, right ?
If you get a discount then should the person behind you also have a discount, right ?

Here on BDJ are YOU able to get a discount and only if YOU decide to tell other people then can they also have a discount too. The same count for people, who surfe on the internet to find a lower price and even then try to get an even lower price...

As Frank S. says... the developers have expences just like you and me, so they cant give everbody a free licens forever...
May 20 2011 at 9:37pm Copy Link
LU Hello Pedro.

I understand you have already a license for Sandboxie. As a user of a one year license, purchased from here, I encourage you to purchase this one as well if you have a one or two year license.

Here is why. If the developer still has the same purchasing policy, I believe the one year license will not start until you actually activate the license. Meaning if your current license expires in 2 weeks or 6 months, you can then activate your new license.

Plus, for the price of such a great piece of software, you can't beat it.

Hope this helps anyone on the edge.
May 20 2011 at 10:24pm Copy Link
Jeff Miller @ Frank Stephens
I don't think it's a sense of entitlement, but more a desire for a good deal. A discount on a one year license is known in retail as a loss-leader. It gets buyers "in the door" with hopes that they will buy other things that are not discounted. Consider if I buy the discounted one year license for 7.5USD and then decide I like and use it enough to purchase the lifetime license for 43.46USD. This would mean I have, in effect, paid over 50USD for a lifetime license. This is not a bargain. However, a real discount from the start on a lifetime license would be.
May 20 2011 at 11:01pm Copy Link
Frank Stephens Jeff Miller, you don't get it. Sandboxie shouldn't be offering either a time-limited license (which shafts the consumer) or a lifetime license (which shafts themselves). It's irrelevant to me, personally, I've never found sandboxes to be very useful, I prefer to use VMs.
May 20 2011 at 11:23pm Copy Link
Michael K Frank, you said that Jeff and I guess others like him which probably includes me " just doesn't get it". I think you are completely wrong.

The fact is there are an infinite number of business models and it is not for any of us to presume we know which is best for every developer. Based on your thoughts there would be no case for "Free" software.

Lifetime licences do not shaft the developer as you put it. There is a good business model used by many that suggests that increasing the customer base with new paid lifetime licences, provides sufficient income for support and future development.

what's wrong with allowing folks to ask for what they want and let each developer decide for themselves if they choose to provide it or not. Developers are grown-ups who can speak for themselves and decide what's good for them and what isn't.

I learned a long time ago, if you don't ask you don't get ,so I've never considered there is any harm done in asking.

In this or any other case of software offered by Bits Du Jour, the developer has the choice of amending the offer or declining.the request, the choice is theirs.

Trucker @ Jeff Miller - As far as I understand your POW then do you left out one more possiblity in the math... The option is that a buyer make a clever decision and choose to buy the life time licens instead of the 1-year licens, which is an eye-catcher...

Life time licens means as long as this software is continued... that is cheaper than 1-year licens to 7.5USD...
There is a trial option too, so you can get an idea of the program before buying it...
May 21 2011 at 5:20am Copy Link
DrTeeth The only problem with a time limited licence is what happens if something happens to the developer or his company? I will not buy software that requires constant revalidation for that reason.

Gonzo Based on the answers from the developer on the previous offer here @ BDJ, (IIRC) it is unlikely they'll offer the lifetime license with a discount, since (according to them) it's already a low price.
Don't get me wrong; I'd love to get a discount on the lifetime license, though I also agree this is one of the software that is worth paying full price... but not everyone can pay for the full price lifetime license.

I'll buy the lifetime license right away if they offer it here with a discount, else it'll have to keep on waiting... :)

Peter C1 You buy a new computer with say Windows 7 installed.

Q1. Can Sandboxie be installed and applied to the entire contents of the BRAND NEW computers harddrive - except for the Registry (which requires access)?

Q2. Does this program also limit the ability of a defragmenter program such as MyDefrag v4.3.1 to realign the harddrive contents?

Q3. Does this Sandboxie conflict with ''sub-sector'' level programs such as HorizonData's Rollback RX or MagiCure Professional
Mar 12 2012 at 12:49am Copy Link
Doug Atkinson I wish Sandboxie would provide for a SINGLE commercial license. My work computer IS my personal computer - so I can't use the personal license. However, to get the commercial license you have to buy a minimum of TWO licenses.

John D If I understand this deal correctly, if I buy 2 licenses, I can activate the second on year 2 after the first has expired, therefore getting 2 years of Sandboxie for $15, is this correct?

DiggerP Hi tzuk,
Same question as John D.
After I purchased 2 licenses ,I only get 1 key code.

Could you clarify please?

Peter E Hi tsuk,
I know I posted before ,but I'm not happy with the lack of response on this forum.I appreciate that the difference in time zones probably plays havoc with this forum ,but no response is not good.
Look, I've been licensed since 2005 or so since I believed in your vision of Sandboxie and always had pretty prompt response to problems ,so I'm surprised you're not attending.
As to the licensing question: Had I ordered the 2 purchases as separate transactions ,I would have received 2 license keys.
But as it stands right now ,I only have 1 key.
This is the problem if things are not specifically described.
Does the key expire after 1 year? Can the 2nd portion be activated
on a different machine after the expiry using the same key?
I'm sorry ,but too many unanswered questions.
As it is ,I would advise other purchasers to conduct a separate transaction for each purchase to avoid this confusion.
Frankly .I'm inclined to cancel my purchase if no response is forthcoming.

Conrad TDI This is a great price for a chance to play with the licensed version of this software. It's not the easiest to use, but the security it affords is amazing.

Well worth the time spent setting up a working configuration!
Mar 12 2012 at 3:16pm Copy Link
VLM Thanks Conrad. I wonder, is there a manual somewhere, or is the documentation limited to the Getting Started tutorial and a bunch of web pages? Thus far, I find that much of this documentation focuses on using the product's features, but lacks basic explanation of what many of these features actually do. One is very much dependent upon one's existing knowledge of how a Windows machine works. And since Sandboxie deals with internals that may be substantially unfamiliar to many people, I suspect that the product presents a rather nightmarish learning curve for many.

Perhaps others have found otherwise?
Mar 12 2012 at 5:08pm Copy Link
Conrad TDI To VLM:

I haven't played with Sandboxie since my switch to Win7 64-bit a few years ago. For quite a while there was no 64-bit version of Sandboxie, but that has apparently been remedied for quite some time.

As I remember, the default setup was adequate for most basic operations, like Firefox, etc. Where it could get balky was in relation to more complex operations like aftermarket file explorer substitutes or file downloaders. Or, by failing to select the sandboxed browser instead of the normal browser of your choice from the menu.

But, to me, this is NOT really a program for those not willing to do a little study. Without this, it is possible to either bypass the sandbox's safety features or lose saved files by failing to extract them from the sandbox. These functions ARE in the menus, but one has to read them quite thoroughly. :)

I'm planning an exciting Friday night setting up the sandbox in a ramdrive - creating a really fast and safe environment. Doesn't that sound like fun!?

All joking aside - for this price I look at this as great access to a really sophisticated piece of isolation software - easier than a virtual machine, and quite flexible. The forums at sandboxie are quite good, too.
Mar 12 2012 at 5:30pm Copy Link
VLM Thanks Conrad. I would be most interested ... and I imagine others would be as well ... in how your experience Friday night goes.

John D Just found out that the license code for Sandboxie is 5 sets of 5 characters. My confirmation for 2 licenses had 2 of these codes of 5 sets so 2 licenses. Activated Sandboxie with one set so this is confirmed.
Mar 12 2012 at 6:01pm Copy Link
Conrad TDI I've read of someone else getting this configuration to work, and I believe he was using Gilisoft Ramdisk. I'm not sure which I will use....

I suspect the sandbox-ramdrive setup will work well once I remember to point my browser cache and Sandboxie to the right locations, not default. Though the author of Sandboxie hasn't been around during this sale, he does keep a pretty thorough list of truly incompatible software on his website. Like most enthusiast sites, the locals are willing to walk neophytes through their indoctrination - so I'm not concerned.

In the end, this is truly hobbyist software, offering the rewards of a safer user environment to those willing to flex their brains for a while.....we hope.

Amit 1) Someone posted this above in comments -

"Sandbox contents also stay there until manual erasure, even after a reboot. This can be a good thing, as you can test software over a period of time within the sandbox. However, since the erasure isn't automatic, if a piece of malware infects the sandbox, it stays in there until you remember to clear the sandbox, making protection a bit less "automatic" than hard drive virtualizers like Power Shadow. "

So my que is How can I keep for eg. say a portable firefox browser full usage for further use and all contents saved - for future use as well ?

Can you surely say that can be done with registered version. I will find out by searching myself too.

Roberto @ Amit - lets see. I created a separate sandbox called "sandbox firefox", downloaded firefox portable and right clicked it and choose Run Sandboxed.

The program ask me where i want to run it, and i can choose the newly created "firefox" sandbox.

All the instalation will remain in the sandbox until you clear it.

My path is somethig like:

C:\Sandbox\DOC01\Firefox\user\current\Mis documentos\Downloads\FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox

you can practice with the free version, but only one sandbox will be allowed.

Just create your installation in the free version under "Sandbox DefaultBox" and imagine that could be a separate sandbox when you buy fhe full version.

Lito Read their FAQ on the site, the license is for 1 year of use and updates. If you don't want the program expiring on you yearly you will need to buy a lifetime one.

The policy listed on this site clearly states you are paying for 1 year of usage of the program:
"Sandboxie Personal One-Year License may be used for 12 months."

Please note, we don't expect our vendors to answer questions that have already been answered on the BDJ promo page.

As the policy tab clearly states:

"Sandboxie Personal One-Year License may be used for 12 months."

That means yes, it'll stop working after a year.

If you're dead set on the lifetime license, feel free to click over to the Sandboxie website where you'll find it available for a very reasonable $39.44.

Sputnik @Roger Thomasson

You are perfectly right when you say that this price of $39.44 for the lifetime license is reasonable.

Hey, it's a one time fee and you get all the future upgrades free afterwhile.

If you avoid buying this one year license at $7.50 and get right now the lifetime license, it is like if you were saving 20% compared to someone who would buy the one year license first and the lifetime license a year or more later...

Personally I don't ask for a deal on the lifetime license because I already own such a license and I never regretted to buy it.

Matt @Robert Tardif

Your enthusiasm towards Sandboxie and the lifetime license is very encouraging. And I would agree with you in avoiding the one year license and going directly for the lifetime license.

But what discourages me is the developer not answering questions here on BDJ. I can understand the developer not answering repetitive questions concerning 'discounts on lifetime licenses', but I posted a question above concerning problems I've encountered in using a basic feature of Sandboxie. I've also emailed the developer concerning this and my questions remained unanswered.

Looking at the current comments and the '134 older comments', the developer has failed to answer 1 single question.

If the developer won't answer pre-purchase questions here on BDJ and won't reply to email, what will his response be after the sale?

Roger Thomasson Ok, turns out the 1-year license doesn't stop working, but rather reverts to 'free' mode.

From Ronen, the developer:

"The software can be used for free indefinitely without ever getting a license, so if one does have a license and it expires, the software simply goes back to free mode and you can keep using it without an active license... The free version is missing the automatic sandboxing feature ("forced programs") and the option to run programs in more than one sandbox at the same time. Also, there is a nag screen occasionally."

We don't require vendors to participate in these BDJ conversations. The majority choose to, but for a number of reasons some do not. It's up to you whether or not you want to draw a correlation between responsiveness here and how responsive a developer is via his/her established support channels, but bear in mind that you could be grossly mistaken.

I used Sandboxie for several years now. It is essential security software.

The Sandboxie 'sandboxed' browser saved my PC numerous times from virus attacks during the course of doing Internet research and visiting websites with 'unknown' reputations. Surfing from inside a 'sandboxed' browser prevents the 'nasties' from infiltrating your PC system.

Sandboxie also is highly useful for performing 'test' installs of Free or dubious software. Perform a sandboxed installation...and if the software proves to be buggy or malware, no harm done to your system.

$21 is an ULTRA cheap price for the high level of security provided by Sandboxie.

Roderick Nicolson I bought Sandboxie on here before and after one year, to my surprise, it returned to a trial version. I lost the use of a number of programs I had running under it - could no longer run them.
Was that a different offering and can you assure the above won't happen with this version?

Sandboxie Hello All, We are very excited to partner with BitsDuJour and run this promotion. The promotion is available for all home use or formerly known as personal license through the purchase of a lifetime license (most popular) or as a 1 year term license.

Preston, Thank you very much!

Roderick, regarding the license timing out on you. I am sorry that had happened, but if you purchase the lifetime license, there will be no timeout. The license is good on the current and future versions of the software.

Best regards and safe computing,

Sandboxie - Jan 16 2016 at 9:00am Copy Link
Sandboxie User @Roderick NicholsonThere is no difference in the software from the Shareware version to the paid version other than Forced folders / programs and the ability to have multiple Sandboxes active. Users find these options very valuable and never have to think about web browsing if they are sandboxed or not.

There is no trial version.

The Shareware version is fully functional. The code is the same. When you pay for SBIE, you get the shareware version, the key unlocks those 3 things mentioned above. (and no Nag screen!)

What programs did you lose the use of and how? Sandboxie does not control any of the programs, SBIE only provides the sandboxed container for which the programs run in.

On occasion, Some programs simply cannot be sandboxed (isolated- either installed directly into a Sandbox or run as sandboxed) and SBIE may not work with all antivirus programs as they interfere. We maintain a list of programs known to cause conflict, and it's updated all the time.

Roderick Nicolson Cannot remember which programs they were but I do remember it was a pivotal moment. I believe I sent Sandboxie a couple of emails about it. Nothing important happened otherwise I would remember. I stopped using it after that as I could not do anything with it. Perhaps the downgrade had some critical affect on the window's system. Wish I could remember the details but cannot.

As adviced, getting a lifetime license could hopefully be the answer.

Oh! ActualIy I do however remember having Kaspersky and being told their was a conflict between Sandboxie and Kaspersky. Is this still the case? I still use Kaspersky, although Kaspersky no longer creates a secured perimeter for installing software etc. So perhaps the conflict has been eliminated.

Sandboxie User Not a huge number, there are dozens and dozens of A/V products that do work, but some that conflict with SBIE. We cannot lower or compromise SBIE for A/V product "X" to work. Simply cannot. Your primary defense is SBIE, then an A/V product of your choice. Windows Defender / Live Essentials is all you need. Why? Again, you're sandboxed. Nothing has been ever confirmed to escape that. Something A/V companies, even the best..cannot stop. SBIE doesn't stop or detect. It sandboxes and isolates. Many programs have programs that cause issues. We choose to be upfront and list that.

Craig S. Sandboxie User writes: "Your primary defense is SBIE, then an A/V product of your choice. Windows Defender / Live Essentials is all you need. Why? Again, you're sandboxed. Nothing has been ever confirmed to escape that."

This may be true, but part of the stated usage of Sandboxie is to test programs that might be suspicious / infected. However, some virus/malware is difficult to spot symptomatically. Therefore, if one can't scan with an A/V / Malware tool before taking something out of the sandbox, how can you really be sure it's safe to do so? I guess I'm a little confused...seems like there's still a risk to get infected if I can scan for malware/virus within the sandbox before moving/installing to regular system (again, assuming one has an AV / malware program that is considered incompatible.)
Jan 17 2016 at 1:40pm Copy Link
Sandboxie User Sandboxie is not antivirus.Sandboxie is your primary defense, you can supplement with A/V that is compatible (many many are) but it also comes down to user common sense. That's your best defense. You can use SBIE, A/V and also use a VM. Nothing is 100%, so if you are testing unknown software or visiting suspect sites, then you have a risk. While nothing has been known to escape a sandbox, you should always delete the contents of that sandbox regularly. A/V is far from 100% effective in detection, and you have to rely on known threats. SBIE doesn't detect, stop, remediate any of that. What's in your sandbox, is there in the sandbox. But your browser on your host and/or your host machine is safe and nothing is changed or written to that. If you need more info, read this link

J S Lets hope that Sandboxie support personnel (from the Vendor, with name displayed in GREEN ink) who did reply to Preston & Roderick WiLL REPLY TO ALL OF THE OTHER PEOPLE's QUESTiONS THAT HAVE BEEN ASKED so far.

There are 20 Comments and most of the BdJ User's are expecting some sort of reply.

I do have Two (2) QUESTiONs:

Q1. if you purchase the 3 PC License version: Does the buyer receive 3 DIFFERENT Product Keys, OR, Just the One (1) Product Key (which can be used on three (3) different PC's)?

I'll explain my reasons for the question once I have received an answer.

Q2. Again referring to the three (3) PC License deal: Do all 3 PC's have to be in the one house/apartment (for example linked to an iP Address), OR, is the Buyer at liberty to give one of the Product Keys to a relative or extremely close friend?

Many thanks in anticipation of eventual answers from the Vendor "Sandboxie".

Roderick Nicolson Just a reply to a statement made earlier by the vendor:
You should not be telling us to compromise our antivirus programs so that Sandboxie will work. Sandboxie does not do the job of an antivirus program and indeed cannot protect our systems in the same way that they do (sandboxie does a good job at what it is meant to do but that does not justify the removal or replacement of our antivirus programs so it will function). And it simply isn't your place to tell us to swap one antivirus program for another.

Most of us have spent years discovering which antivirus programs work best for us, and yet you advocate tossing them aside (Hey! We paid money for those too. I have just started a two year contract with Kaspersky. I cannot just toss it aside so Sandboxie will work for me. It really does sound at times as if you are making excuses for these incompatabilities.
I don't know which programs are at fault for these incompatabilities, but it does seem strange to me that it is Sandboxie that is the one that is incompatible with all the other programs. This suggests the problem really lies with sandboxie and not the other way round. Most other vendors find solution (have to); perhaps it is time you found some solutions for compatibility problem too.

You also said 'no compromise'. Are you saying that the other vendors do? I know for a fact that Kaspersky is a very professional, efficient, and a diligent organisation. I doubt very much that they would compromise but they do sort out compatability problems. I have experienced it two or three times now.

Sandboxie User Once you're running in a sandbox, those programs are really redundant. Why? Antivirus (A/V) alone will not protect you like sandbox isolation can. A/V products require a subscription and the hope they will detect and update the detection files and heuristics before a threat writes to your machine - all this is done on your machine.

With Sandboxie, you never had to worry about that. If surfing / email client is run under the authority of Sandboxie. If you do get a virus/malware or ransom ware. You simply delete the contents of your sandbox and start your browser or email client again.

Virus remediation/removal isn’t needed. Your host machine is never written too and our browser is never touched. Ever. This also works in keeping your private files and folders hidden from 3rd party website and programs already on your machine.

Your primary defense should be Sandboxie, then Antivirus. It’s been proven many, many times over the 13 years that nothing can escape a sandbox and harm your computer. With Antivirus, no one can even make that claim
