OK, I know I had a program to do this before I reset my computer, but I have tried to remember and remember for the past month, and I can't.

I am looking (or, trying to remember) for a program that allows me to install a program in a 'virtual machine' basically. So, if I want to install an untrusted program, I can simply right click, open with PROGRAM, and it installs it into a virtual 'place' on my hard drive.

I need it to be free and run on Windows 7 64 bit.

  • Do you think of Sandboxie?

    Be sure to save a list of installed applications before the next reset :)

  • Run programs in a sandbox to prevent […] software […] from making permanent changes to your machine

  • Protect yourself from a wide variety of attacks […]

  • Configure your own sandboxes to meet your specific needs - install new software directly into a sandbox, run multiple copies of the same on-line game, turn a single-instance application into a multi-user application
