Sandboxie, a virtual environment for running dubious software and more, in complete safety - video tutorial

Hi friends, today I will present a program that protects better than any security software, here I am not referring to a type program antivirus, antispyware or firewall, I mean a virtual environment very quickly that we can run applications dubious and beyond, we can try and legitimate applications, which we know can sometimes create problems.
The software that you present it is called Sandboxie (crate sand), it creates a virtual environment where we can run or install applications, a kind of limbo virtual entering the software but can not get out there software can be run normally although their functions and settings, the only difference is that they have no direct connection with our other files.
Consider the following scenario:
1. You are on yahoo messenger and a friend will send you a link to a "cool picture" or a "funny video", in fact there is a big virus waiting for you (shaved in the head, tattooed on the motorcycle with a slap in the hand), curiosity will not let you not access that link sent by "your friend", of course you will realize what follows…
2. If you run yahoo messenger in the "sandboxed" virtual environment, the virus will not hurt, it will run but it will not be able to go anywhere to do damage, it will hit the virtual walls of the sandbox.
Sandboxie environment, is totally isolated from the real world, we have demonstrated this and n tutorial which I downloaded the virtual browser was not available in the normal environment (non sandboxed).
Perhaps it seems complicated if you have not been paying attention, nothing will understand how things work after watching the tutorial probably going to take my few chestnuts in the head from specialists for explanations too simplistic, do this to every man understands what we speak.

Applications that should run in Sandboxie or sandboxed (in sandbox):
Software chat:
Yahoo Messenger
Google Talk
Pidgin
Skype
Web Browser:
Firefox
Internet Explorer
Opera
Chrome
Email client:
Thunderbird
Outlook
Outlook Express
The Bat
Manager download:
Free Download Manager
GetRight
FlashGet
These are just a few types of applications and applications that can bring malware into your computer, you can add to this list and you are looking for.
Happy browsing and do not forget, Sandboxie can protect yourself much better than an antivirus protect you.

  1. Beautiful tutorial! I really needed something like that…
    But when you entered the C> SandBox partition> your user> DefaultBox and drive (Can you create as many partitions as you want? Can you delete from the partitions?)

  2. Nicu Dumitrescu said

    KIS also has a box. Is there anything similar?

    • Nicu Dumitrescu: She has such a KIS box. Is there anything similar?  

      KIS 2011 x64 nu are… “The Safe Run for Applications component from Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 does not support the following operating systems: Microsoft Windows XP x64, Microsoft Windows Vista x64, Microsoft Windows 7 x64.”

      Nicu Dumitrescu: She has such a KIS box. Is there anything similar?  

  3. Good tutorial. Filositor for you who want to test the executable

  4. po softu that can install and games?

  5. hard! better than a free antivirus and e-ware.asta show virtual mode only thing that did show downloading.

  6. Bravo The much awaited tutorial on Sandboxie.Felicitari and continued success to all the team

  7. Nicu Dumitrescu said

    Mr. Cristi, sorry for returning to the same subject (I hurried to see the tutorial first) On KIS 2010 (for which you have already done a tutorial, after which I installed KIS 2010) there is Sand Box. Now on KIS 2011 it is called “shared directory safe execution) My question is: if I have KIS 2011 (with license) is the software in this tutorial still needed? I don't want to have two softwares on the hard drive doing the same thing. Thank you. (Anyway, I'll test Sandboxie too)

  8. Exceptional!
    Frequently use virtualization to test various applications or suspicious executables (cracks, keygen sites etc..), As well as surfing the net. So far I have used VMware Workstation, just go slow system due to sharing resources with the virtual machine. I see that this software has solved the problem, and offers two advantages: safety and speed.
    Thanks for the tip.

  9. Cristi corrects the third tag that says "the fastest virtual environment" and it doesn't sound right !!!

  10. Hello Cristi! I saw that you made a series of tutorials on wire. As a proposal for a tutorial or series of tutorials about Photoshop as you do. Progam is quite complex and I think it would be a lot of homework to do tutorials for this program.

    • And I also subscribe to a tutorial! Gigel

      anonymousHi Cristi! I saw that you made a series of tutorials on wire. As a proposal for a tutorial or series of tutorials about Photoshop as you do. Progam is quite complex and I think it would be a lot of homework to do tutorials for this program.  Cite me

  11. ASUSCristi corrects the third tag that says "the rapid ami virtual environment" and does not sound right!  

    Thanks, I corrected even we make mistakes

  12. anonymousHi Cristi! I saw that you made a series of tutorials on wire. As a proposal for a tutorial or series of tutorials about Photoshop as you do. Progam is quite complex and I think it would be a lot of homework to do tutorials for this program.  

    The Gimp series is a real support for "professionals" who want to jump directly to Photoshop.
    A novice user, do not know what can be done in photoshop, you can do with the Gimp??
    That's how we are…
    A series of photoshop would be welcome, perhaps soon we will.

  13. how long probation in Sandboxie?
    I saw that it's not free

  14. You have nothing Cristi, bravo to the tutorial I needed something I could not find the program and

  15. For me this program has no effect.

  16. hello! for a year I asked you to do this tutorial you said then that no one would be interested. better later than ever!
    dirpy.com died… I think screenr r instead of dirpy use an online page to play live mp3 from youtube video, more precisely video2mp3 (that's the name of the page)
    Congratulations anyway for your work and because I saw that you put 2,3 tutorials per day for a while. I say that this will double the number of visitors to the site… it is great if you put 2-3 tutorials a day all the time!
    Greetings and keep up the good work you are the hottest in Romania!

  17. Sandboxie is good for utorrent?
    If I run uTorrent in the sandbox and then download a file with utorrent that file will be downloaded everything in the sandbox?
    And if so can you scan with your antivirus?

  18. Nicu Dumitrescu said

    Mr. Stefan, thanks for the reply. I Win.7 Ultimate x32. I wanted to know if it's a certain similarity between the KIS and this software is that it shows the professionalism dl.Cristi in this tutorial.

  19. Brother…
    this thing is really cool!
    Sandboxie so run a virus and not get infected!
    practically surpasses even the avg, Avira and Kaspersky!
    note 10
    Five stars from me
    the best tutorial!

  20. Interesting tutorial.
    I watched and what I think about it, let's check if the antivirus is that!
    Surprise!
    I use COMODO
    In the DEFENSE section I find the option "Run a program in the Sandbox"
    Interesting!
    I mention that I had no idea to run a program in sandbox.

    THANK YOU FOR VIDEOTUTORIAL!

  21. hello everyone, I have a question not related to the tutorial I apologize for that, so: cd-rom does not want to read blank cd? any cd I put read without problems, but a blank cd .. void simply see! dc? I've never had trouble with him before. If anyone knows or has had similar problems please post a comment. thx

  22. I really needed this program…

  23. Basil knows what said

    Outlawry time ... sometimes realize that the internet has been a little, but
    There are several techniques by which some scripts, viruses if you will, can cause improper running of some components. For example, a virus can keep your HDD, video card or processor at 100% or it can create folders or files indefinitely, it can occupy all your ram memory, etc.… and thus "crack" the system… so do not rely on Sandboxie… the sandbox is useful if we have a cat at home :)))))))))))))

      I haven't laughed so hard in a long time… friend, don't be upset, but did you get a virus from the one you're talking about?

  24. hi. I have an Asus P5QPL-AM motherboard, socket 775, and an Intel Pentium 4 524, 3066 MHz processor and I have a rather old ATI Radeon X300 / X550 / X1050 video card, and I would like to buy it after emag.ro the following Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4650 video card, 1024MB, DDR2, 128bit, HDMI, PCI-E or this: ATI Radeon HD 5450 Silence HIS video card, 1024MB, DDR3, 64bit, HDCP, DualLink DVI, Full HD, PCI-E as wants to know if they can be compatible with the processor and the motherboard. thanks…

    Viorel, buy a card from nVidia for all the money they have

  27. Basil knows what said

    A virus could change up the CPU frequency lock safety mechanisms to stop the system in case of overheating, thus destroying the CPU or motherboard (or both). Possibly could write nonsense in the guise of making it impossible to boot BIOS. It might overwrite the boot sectors on a HDD ... the rest is good, let's see the new tutorial

      More than likely you do not know anything about hardware or software, science fiction biggest I heard in my life.
      Please refrain from such "smart" thoughts in the future, I do not want to go into technical details.

  28. yes .. is very good .. very good tutorial but I have a question :)
    If PAGI Mozilla Firefox in the sandbox and go on a site with hacks and Sandboxie catch the virus affects your PC in the program and nuti affect PC?
    or steals your PC IP and enter tn .. Sandboxie to enter the PC stops us?

  29. I installed Odc-u in the "sandbox" but it does not allow me to connect to someone on the PC. Is there any possibility that I can connect or do I have to install the program outside the box? Thanks!

    • Alin: I installed the ODC-u in "sandbox" but does not allow me to connect to someone in pc.Exista any way I can connect or need to install software outside the box? Thank you!

      Uses something else, odc doesn't know about tth, can't check the integrity of the downloaded file. Use apexDC (strong but slightly better tuned clone) and roll it out of the "sandbox", and if you have a router make a port-forward (read the router's manual).

  30. Sry my friend, but these are nonsense. "Sandboxie can protect you much better from yourself than an antivirus will protect you."

    This little program will not protect a PC NEVER better than a complete security solution (no matter how optimistic you are).

    Statistically speaking, how many users have a licensed operating system with all the security patches up to date? Attempts are being made to secure the computer with all sorts of "miracle" programs that do nothing but impede the user.

    If it's all about ymessenger, there are many alternatives, more complex, more secure, but it's still about: "head do, head pull"

    I consider the best "sandbox" vmware or virtual-box.

    • Tiberius: Statistically speaking, how many users are licensed operating system with security patches up to date? He kept trying all kinds of computer security programs "miracle" that do nothing to prevent utilizatorul.Daca all comes ymessenger, there are many alternative, compelxe safer, but it's "head is head pull "best" sandbox "I consider vmware or virtual-box.  

      I have computer with all updates to be up to date antivirus BitDefender Total Security 2011 licensed, just use Mozilla with noscript and addblock, and I have no problems, many rarely give a scan everything to advance pro license Windows Registry Cleaner invalid shortcuts small errors stuff like that. Computer running smoothly for almost 2 years since I installed Windows applications even if intense exchange games, I have no problems. It is true that small problems can occur, but if you observe them quickly understood user task manager and you can remove in seconds. I see no limitation if you use a software protection can about the speed 5kb 10-tomers who or how does it senses. Run a VMware bone is much higher limit, I know that I used and I had mac and linuxuri application, but I have concluded that ereau waste of time. And linux, mac solaris limitations means a lot of Windows specific software.

  31. Cristi, I ran so hard and I infentactat all c: I was curious, I went on what might be infected. I apologize if I'm wrong, I do not recommend testing on unsafe sites virusi.Recomand on both. You ask me what I did, I will not say it will be a disaster. If you'll be good I think will be effective, I used to be free .. naughty .. . That happened MUCH NOW 3 months, FIMI clear. Do not try and viruses use files that you think are infected, do not take on the classic addresses the torrents will seem strange, even on those .. to be pregatiti.Va advise you to have a good antivirus. The guys will advise on what's Videotutorial.ro bun.INTOTDEAUNA. Success! I thank Christ .. But take care of yourself and your buddies, always.

    • Dragos: Cristi, I ran something like that and it made me very angry: I was curious, I went in on what could be infected. I apologize if I'm wrong, I do not recommend testing on viruses. I recommend on unsafe sites, both. You will ask me what I did, I will not tell you because it will be a disaster. IF YOU WILL BE GOOD I think it will be effective, I used it without being ... naughty… THIS HAPPENED MORE, 3 MONTHS AGO, TO FIMICLE. Do not try viruses and do not use files that you think are infected, take from classic addresses not from torrents that seem strange to you, even from those ... be prepared. Advise you to have a good antivirus. The guys on Videotutorial.ro will recommend the best. ALWAYS successful. I thank Cristi ... But take care of you and your friends, always.

  33. good people… I know this is the novel… he is the best and knows everything… BUT, I think there are few who can challenge the professionalism of CRITI, who know for sure that before giving the tutorial try the software on all sides… but who do you think are competing with those from the video tutorial, but with real technical arguments not with personal opinions "smart thinking", but until then let's be fair play and do what we have to do… that is to thank this team of smart guys… .with all my heart !!! Thank you with all my heart…

      You're absolutely dreptate.Cine is believed able to leave chatter, to build a website and show off there skills. I for one, go here as a student. Equally though, I think if anyone has an opinion about a topic, and has good arguments, he is free to express themselves. Interactivity in the heading of comments is even required by the admins, and it is of course always welcome.

    This program is good, but what do you think about "RETURNIL" ???? I have been using it for a long time (and this program is free) and I am very satisfied.

  36. tibyarad said

    How do such if I got a virus on Sandboxie to empty box, if you can enlighten me? fecare restart the empties box?
    Wait for response

  37. Mihai Ionescu said

    I would ask you to "bend" over the RETURNIL program as well.
    Sincerely yours misuion

    • Mihai Ionescu: I would ask you to "lean" and the program RETURNIL.Cu Dear misuion  

      And that's good. But if you only surf the net virtualization, Online Armor Firewall, even in the free version has a similar function.

  38. I have a problem.

    The first time I installed Sandboxie, I started the program browser, messenger, go all, shut your PC and when back in the sandbox browser opens but does not open appears in the sandbox my program runs , but actually opens, but when I open it without sandbox, then go.

    What's the problem?

  39. Ovidiu T said

    Hi,
    You could do a tutorial and about BufferZone Pro from Trustware, also from the category of sandbox / sandboxing programs. It's free and has a nicer interface than Sandboxie…

  40. maxxxymus said

    Hello! I installed Sandboxie including 3.46 with serial and unfortunately while surfing the internet all pages and letters I hal deformed so that they do not see anything clear, it is deleted. Can you say to me which is why I make or what it can be used without problems! ms!

  41. I am very pleased installed I installed it works perfectly mia mesenger demanded that wants administrator, did not know where he wants as administrator in computer training or in boxes, Lam found in boxes installed in computer training because I looked and there is nicaeri and brauserul works perfectly in sandbox, I wish the SAR could do a tutorial on how to install this sandbox and run some software because it was too short, thank you.
