    Some of these programs that I am coming across look really interesting, some say that the virus detected is just part of the packing process.

    Is there a safe way to run programs and keep it contained from the rest of the pc?

    Thanks

    Simple! Download a program to make you a virtual PC which you can use for testing.
    You simply dedicate some of your PC's hard drive and Memory and install Windows XP on a virtual PC that runs within your current OS (Explained here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86_virtualization)

    Use sandboxie

    Easy to use and does exactly what you want without the virtual machine.
