Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Now for an in the box solution to an out of the box problem.
with all the malware running amok wrecking your registry, how long do you really think you can keep a clean install free of suspicious elements? why not just keep the bad guys in a lock box and let them run free there?
using sandboxie, an easy to install mostly fully functional free program that adds a layer of protection to existing programs, you will be able to keep a lid on automatically installing programs and keep your pc fresh for as long as you like. with the free installation you will only be able to use one sandbox at a time but that is more than enough for the average user as you can also setup multiple profiles. sandboxie works like explorer except that it hooks the programs which are run with it to its own registry box. if ever you encounter something you dont like, you can either reset the box to a previous fresh configuration or completely wipe away the offending program without a trace. in this manner certain downloads can be tested before its actually integrated into the system. the box can be used to hide files as well as save files and log securely onto websites. sandboxie has many special features yet so try it for yourself, its free.
