You don't even have to guess. If it's something you know that you installed and know is safe then it should be okay. If it's something you don't recognize, it might not be so you don't run it. No guesswork involved there.

Many fake antiviruses (rogue software) aren't easy to recognize for computer beginners.

Most infections today are drive by download or java exploit. If a site is infected by a java exploit your java plug-in in your browser downloads other malware if your antivirus don't detect it.

A browser used with Sandboxie for instance can't harm anything of your real machine. All bad things aren't able to bypass the sandbox. A far as I know. Therefor sandboxing is useful in my opinion. 

In this topic we are talking about the auto-sandbox feature here.

You can't elect to run a browser sandboxed in the auto-sandbox. For that you have to be using avast Pro or AIS versions with the full sandbox feature.
