Playing in the Sandbox

The Internet is fraught with dangers, spyware, malware, viruses and all sorts of other things that you really don't want on your computer.  Anti-virus and anti-spyware programs only work after the threat is detected on your system, so it would help to keep them off before they cause trouble.  That's where Sandboxie comes in.  Sandboxie is a free program that can run programs in a safe, contained environment without causing harm to your system.  Any program can be run in a sandbox, but the most popular are web browsers and e-mail clients since they are directly connected and download from the Internet.  Any malicious programs can be deleted with the click of a mouse.  Sandboxie is free for personal use and available for download HERE.  They have a really good online tutorial system, so check it out.
