I want to try out dubious software on my windows 10 computer.
(Bold parts are keywords for the TL/DR fraction)
What is the state of the art precaution to do this most likely safely today?
The software I want to install requires admin rights to install. I did some research and it was conflicting, so I decided to not share it to not influence the answers.
To make this specific.
- Is a sandbox like sandboxie sufficient when I use my computer with admin rights and uac.
- Is a virtual environment like virtualbox sufficient when I use my computer with admin rights and uac.
- Should I create another user without admin rights?
- Should I try to remove the admin requirements from the exe and go to 1-3?
What are best practises today?
