BEST OF THE REST
Comodo Free Firewall or Comodo Antivirus www.comodo.com and antivirus.comodo.com Normally, we’d take issue with the amount of bloat that comes with Comodo’s free security tools, but we’ll admit that its inclusion of a sandboxing tool is actually rather useful. It comes as part of both Comodo Free Firewall and Comodo Antivirus. Right-click any program file or shortcut and select ‘ Run in Comodo Container’ to sandbox it, but take care to deselect the many unwanted permissions and components Comodo attempts to foist on you during installation.
Toolwiz Time Freeze bit.ly/timefreeze446 Time Freeze uses a clever type of virtualisation to sandbox your entire PC. Whenever you enable Freeze mode, it takes a snapshot of your PC. You can then install any software, run any program or make any changes to your system – everything will be discarded when you next restart your PC. On the downside, a reboot is required every time you switch Freeze mode off.
Turbo.net turbo.net This tool takes a completely different approach, in that it has a bunch of programs already stored in the cloud – including Chrome, Firefox, media players and more. Sign up for a free account, install the desktop launcher and you can run any of these programs in a virtualised sandbox on your PC. With a paid-for account (£21 per month), you can run programs in the cloud – which is even safer!
