Windows 7: Sandbox Programs?

Sandbox Programs?

Since sandboxie is not being supported for windows 7 yet, has anyone found any sandbox programs that work on 7? I liked how light sandboxie was so I'd prefer a stand alone sandbox program.

Blast Microsoft for removing the awesome Guest Mode they initially had in 7000!

edit: sandboxie works on 7 but not on 64 bit yet. >=(

Not the same thing - VBox is virtualization for entire Operating Systems - Sandboxing is for isolation of specific *applications* in a single Operating System.

not sure this is the same this looks like sfotware firewall solution not a sandbox. Reason everyone loved sandboxie is it would let you run any exe in the virtual window and if it had a virius it would not effect your OS or registry.

Keygens etc...

Dont think there is one for x64 at all anyway Sandboxie didnt work under x64 either.

I used to run Returnil on XP and whilst it was a little inconvenient - it was excellent. Don't have time to test it on 7 till about 7 hours hence. If no one has done it by then (!!! step up, step up) I'll give it a spin.

I posted that I had previously used Returnil in XP - it creates a virtual space which when running is used to store all data created during the session. Come a way since I last used it. And I run 32bit so I don't know abt 64 bit windows.

On my system;
  1. Set-up and run seemed just fine - downloaded and installed Opera. did a few other things. None of these should have shown any trace of when turning Returnil off and re-booting
  2. Re-booted, start up seemed slow (my imagination?), booted into windows, again it was slow, selected my user - NOTHING HAPPENED. Did not complete (or even start the load). Ditto selecting different user (Administrator).
  3. Booted into Safe Mode. Had to do a restore/or an uninstall to get back into any user.
  4. Returnil, however had done its job - no sign of Opera etc.
So your experience may vary but I doubt it. Returnil a NO NO.

I suspect that all that fails is for the virtual space to properly dismount. But not prepared to risk it again.

Hey there, I was playing around with different operating systems, but at the end I just want to go back to my good old Windows 7. But I have one problem and I seek for help here. I do not know if this is the right place, but Backup and Restore sounds good to me. So here we go. :) My problem...

need a sandbox program
that works on x64, NOT Sandboxie because it's gay and not free. It has to be free (not 30-day trail BS), it has to be capable of a number of separated sandboxes at the same time (so no demo version BS). I'm so sick and tired of those people who attempt to make money by providing your free stuff...

Hello everyone. After installing Windows 7 Ultimate, I found that one of my usual programs (Autodesk Maya 2009) doesn't quite work as it used to. I can install it and use it as (almost) normal, but there are querks here and there. Also, I've always disliked installing new programs on my work...
