Hi folks

I'm looking for

* An application I can install onto Windows XP
* Which will will allow the end user to install new applications "into" (e.g.: Firefox Beta 9000)
* And play with the app to determine it's suitability
* Then trash/delete the application they're trialling

Without impacting the Windows XP OS on the host computer.

I looked at Sandboxie:
http://www.sandboxie.com/

And wondered if anyone had experience with this, or a more suitable.

Me.

Hmmm...I hadn't thought about your suggestion.

We have the PC's in the office so if we can reuse them then, initially, I thought that's the best bet.

It's for our junior staff who are semi-tech (but generation Y so bound to leave a trail of OS destruction and wonder why it didn't clean itself up).

Are there perils using this against, say, Virtualbox?

I've used sandboxie in the past, it should work fine for what you want.

I signed up for CloudShare Pro (free) after seeing this thread - however it looks like they are ending the free service now. I received the following in an email from them this morning:

CloudShare Email: We have changed our offering and our free CloudShare Pro service will no longer be available after April 10.

We would like to offer you the opportunity to upgrade to CloudShare ProPlus free for 60 days.


Anyone else know of any other free alternatives?

kyhwana2: I've used sandboxie in the past, it should work fine for what you want.

Came here to suggest this too.
