you are welcome.
in comodo you might be able to change the folder location, I don't remember for sure, but you can ask on their forum if it is important to you. there are some options there, but I don't have comodo installed right now, so I can't check it out.

there is one other interesting option for you, although it doesn't run quite the same as sandboxie: it is "browser in a box"

It basically is a dedicated and very simple linux virtual machine, it runs in Virtual Box, and it does one thing: run the browser of your choice. chrome or firefox.
the download gives you the complete kit with everything you need.
even if you are not a linux guy, it is very easy to run. no sweat .

you can try shade
http://www.shadesandbox.com/
by the way, comodo free firewall has a strong sandbox. Not everyone knows this, but you can run your browser in comodo sandbox, even on your regular desktop, like you do with sandboxie. You don't have to use the comodo secure desktop.
But in terms of ease of use, you can't beat sandboxie. No other sandbox will let you drag and drop files from your desktop onto your browser, or give you such easy access to downloaded files.

ReHIPS has a very strong sandbox . If you ask nicely, they will let you join the closed beta, and give you a limited version of the program.

all these programs seem secure and they run with no problems to my pc. shade is very simple with no options at all, you can only choose which browsers you want to run sandboxed. comodo has some options but for instance you can't change your sandbox folder location like in sandboxie. thanks for the help!

Rehips is the most secure solution around. it is more secure than sandboxie (although less convenient).
but it is hard to run chrome in sandbox in the free version of rehips, although firefox is no problem.
if you like ultimate security, you have to get rehips.
