    What is your favorite sandboxing software?


    I heard Sandboxie is a good one. What is the difference between free and premium?

    I use Avast 8 AV and it incorporates auto-sandboxing technology into it protection scheme:

    For me, there is no "run in sandbox" option in the context menu.

    Hmm.. I can only tell you that I have the free version and you see the screenshot; yes?

    The best way I can describe it in layman's terms is that Avast 8 is monitoring all PC activity; period. The nice thing I like about Avast is you can tell when its working because the animated icon in the system tray starts to spin. Anyway, it not only monitors for malware but it also monitors for any suspicious program activity that cannot be positively identified as malware but appears to be executing in a very suspicious manner. If identified as such, the program will be placed in a sandbox environment until it can be fully analyzed by Avast. Once done, recommendations will follow. This is very useful when a brand new virus surfaces and virus definitions have not been updated to positively identify the malware.

    Does anyone remember Esafe Desktop from waaaay back..

    This software was so customizable, you could prevent it from streaming your name , address, or any numbers.
    It was a control freak's dream come true!

    With most programs, you can right click and then see "run in comodo sandbox", "run in avast sandbox", etc. However, when I right click, no run in avast sandbox is there.
