Process virtualization (Sandbox)

The avast! Sandbox allows you to browse the web or run another application in a
completely safe environment. This is especially useful when visiting high-risk web
sites, whether accidentally or deliberately, as the browser will be completely
contained within the sandbox, preventing any damage to your computer.
The sandbox can also be used to run any other applications which you think may be
suspect you can run the program inside the sandbox to determine whether or not it
is safe while remaining completely protected against any malicious actions that it
may try to carry out.
To run an application or to browse the web using the sandbox, just click on “Run a
virtualized process” then browse the files on your computer to find the required
application e.g. Internet Explorer. The browser or other application will then open in a
special window with a red border, indicating that it is being run inside the sandbox.
In the Sandbox Settings, you can further define applications that should always be
run in virtualized mode, and trusted applications that should never be virtualized.
In the main Program settings, in the “Browser Integration” tab, you can further
specify that your browsers should always be run in the Sandbox to ensure you are
always protected while surfing the web.
