Is there any virtual desktop software that can virtualize desktop just like a virtual desktop to sandbox (sort of like virtualization and sandbox combined). I want to create many desktop and each of them must be sandbox. For example if I have virus infected in one of the desktop, I just have to clear or close the desktop and everything is fine. Is there any software that can do that kind of jobs that I have mentioned? Remember I am not asking recommendation of software, but the software that can do the job.

UPDATE: I mean that every virtual desktop is working as a virtual box or sandbox. Clearing or closing the desktop will work as shutting down that virtual box.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

It is very unclear what you are asking. Have you already researched existing virtualization technologies? Why are they not appropriate for your use case? I really don't understand what you are trying to do. If you just want to provide defense in depth from viruses and such, bog standard virtualization software such as VirtualBox and VMware can do well; but be aware that sneaky viruses CAN penetrate the hypervisor and get to the host system.. there are several cases of that happening in the past. –  allquixotic Aug 29 '12 at 13:55
What do you mean by "sandbox?" –  Anderson Green Aug 30 '12 at 3:14
