Disc clone from sandbox?

Hi

Thanks

Printing securely?

Hi If I allow the print spooler to do its thing under normal circumstances, can an infected file which I am trying to print contaminate my pc through the temp folder? Is it worth sandboxing the system temp and the user temp folders? I'm thinking of making the printing process as secure as possible. ...

Re: Does Sbxie download need dllhost.exe?

Thanks for replying bo.elam! What confuses me is when you said: "It is normal for dllhost.exe to attempt to run when you browse using File explorer to find the folder where you want a download to be downloaded to." I didn't browse, dllhost.exe just popped up of its own accord when I attempted the do...

Hi. I wanted to download the latest sandboxie (5.20) manually from the older versions page, but when I tried I got sbie 1308 "Program can't start due to restriction" and it mentioned dllhost.exe, which is obviously not allowed to run in the download folder. Why would a sandboxie download activate dl...

Basically Norton is playing up for some configurations with Firefox, and I uninstalled my Norton 360 22.5.4.24 on my Win 8.1 machine, and I now just use Defender and sandboxie because I need firefox.

Tried it. No joy.

If I use Windows Firewall (8.1) + Defender + Sandboxie, would that seem like reasonable protection?

I closed down the browser and tried to go back online after the norton update and I cant get on, except ma...

Re: Sandboxes failing to erase

Hi Bo.

So your only security software is Windows firewall and sandboxie? Have you ever had virus problems?

Re: No Sboxie Control Panel with 8.1

Thanks Bo!

Just one more thing: If I lose the control panel for some reason, can I delete the sandbox at C:\Sandbox\Username\sandboxname? Is that equivalent to a full delete in the control panel?

Thanks again.
