Sandboxie 5.10 64-bit


Sandboxie 5.10 64-bit is a program developed by Sandboxie Holdings. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it.

A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is start.exe. The software installer includes 50 files and is usually about 5.58 MB (5,855,590 bytes). updater.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released. In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 10 as well as Windows 7 (SP1). While about 40% of users of Sandboxie 64-bit come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Italy.
