I love sandboxie, and think it should be an integral piece of every Windows user's PC security setup. Unfortunately, to get the most out of sandboxie takes a some work. I've put together a pretty thorough guide on how to properly configure a browser sandbox for a first time user. I wrote the guide mostly for friends and family whom I've directed to Sandboxie over the years, but hopefully others can find it useful. Let me know what you think, and if I've gotten anything wrong.
