And after that: Get VirtualBox, and install the required OS for the application (XP should probably do fine, but Windows 7 would imho be safer/more robust). Don't allow the guest-OS access to network or local resources.

Sandboxie should only be used for things like testing software and being able to roll back - you shouldn't use it for things you suspect might contain malware, as it's not a full virtualization solution.

I use it mainly for open games for my kid (usually flash games).

They are all free games, but i'm fear  :-[
