A program to protect your system from malware.

  • Sandboxed Windows Explorer
    • In Sandboxie Control: Run Sandboxed -> Windows Explorer
    • Files cut (or copied) in a sandboxed Windows Explorer window, can be pasted into any unsandboxed application
    • The SandboxieExplorer replacement for Windows Explorer has been discontinued
  • Sandboxed Windows Installer
    • Starts and stops automatically as needed
    • Run Sandboxed -> Windows Installer has been discontinued
    • Can install packages from network shares
  • Sandboxed Installation of Win32 Services
    • Happens transparently and automatically as part of sandboxed installation, if needed
    • Note, this does not refer to drivers
  • Stronger protection of window-to-window communications
    • Sandboxed applications can't destroy windows of an application outside the sandbox
    • Sandboxed applications can't communicate with windows outside the sandbox
    • Can be overriden with OpenWinClass
    • Sandboxed applications can't send fake keyboard input to windows outside the sandbox
    • Can be overriden with BlockFakeInput
  • Sandboxing of Win32 Hooks
    • System-global hooks are converted into application-level hooks, and directed to sandboxed applications only
    • Can be overridden with BlockWinHooks
    • Earlier versions of Sandboxie allow a sandboxed program to install a global hook DLL, if the hook DLL file is located outside the sandbox
  • Support for read-only files and registry keys
    • See ReadFilePath and ReadKeyPath
    • Can be used by administrators to make sure sandboxed applications can't bypass system policy by modifying the sandboxed copy of the Policies registry key
  • Sandboxie no longer needs a system restarts when upgrading or removing the program
    • Note that upgrading from an earlier version, such as 2.86, will still require a restart
  • Improved support for Windows Vista
  • Revised 'Temporarily Disable Forced Programs':
    • Applies only in the login session where it is used, as opposed to being applied globally to Sandboxie in earlier versions
    • Can be disabled (see ForceDisableSeconds)

Smaller changes:

  • No error message if OpenFilePath et al specify a drive letter that isn't available (Useful when used with portable hard drives that may not always be available)
  • Support for more devices inside the sandbox, specifically, webcams
  • Sandbox name can be displayed in title bar. See BoxNameTitle
  • Reduced chance for SBIE1406 errors
  • When re-creating a deleted sandboxed folder, for which there is a corresponding real folder, the folder will be re-created empty. In earlier versions, the folder would re-created with the contents of the real folder.
