Re: Windows 10 - Font of text in sandboxed explorer (folders etc) appears lower resolution

The size seems a little bigger, bulkier sandboxed. Bo The behaviour should be that the sandboxed explorer window is opened with also the identical size/shape of the respective unsandboxed window. For example, if the unsandboxed window is maximised, then the sandboxed window should also be opened ma...

Re: Windows 10 - Font of text in sandboxed explorer (folders etc) appears lower resolution

Hi ssj100, in my W10 64 bits version 1703 laptop, scale at 100%, all looks the same sandboxed and unsandboxed. The opening of sandboxed Explorer feels fast but not as instantaneous as the non sandboxed version. As far as I am concerned, all regarding running Explorer sandboxed is well in this lapto...

Re: Windows 10 - Font of text in sandboxed explorer (folders etc) appears lower resolution

EDIT: okay, I think I worked out the issue: If you set the "size of text, apps and other items" (under the Windows "Display" - "Scale and layout" setting) to anything greater than "100%", then the above issue(s) can be reproduced. Try setting it to 200% to see it more obviously. I have doubts whethe...

Windows 10 - Font of text in sandboxed explorer (folders etc) appears lower resolution

Windows 10 64-bit (1703). Sandboxie 5.20. No other security applications installed. Can anyone reproduce this please. I can't seem to reproduce it in a freshly installed (ancient) version of Windows 10, but I've noticed this with a fully updated version as above. I suspect Windows 10 itself changed ...

Re: Installing Browsers Directly Into SBIE [Updated 6/06]

Just a quick update with running Chrome directly installed inside a sandbox on Windows 10. I think when the device is in standby (and Chrome is running), that's when the errors start spitting out (including "Error in GUI server" ones). It's not easy to reproduce, hence why I haven't given exact step...

Re: Please fix Chrome process cancelations due to QWAVEdrv [SOLVED]

Ok. As I mentioned it works fine in Windows 7 though, Sandboxie doesn't kill all the Chrome processes even if I don't allow direct access to that device. Hence why I'm sticking with Windows 7 for as long as possible on my desktop - I've noticed so many "bugs" on Windows 10 in the short period I've ...

Hello pipppero2007, I just re-tried the steps on Windows 10 x64 CU + latest Sandboxie beta and was able to install Chrome and then run i using the -no-sandbox flag. You have to check the "Run as UAC administrator" box when you drag the installation file to the desired Sandbox. I am not sure why doe...

Re: Please fix Chrome process cancelations due to QWAVEdrv

Yes that's probably what happened, thanks. In most of my sandboxes 'Allow direct access to Windows Font Cache' and 'Allow direct access to qWave driver (Google Hangouts)' are unchecked. New Sandboxes they are checked. I could check them but I still think Sandboxie should not kill the processes and ...

Re: Sandboxie and Malware

I think you thought Sandboxie would be able to 100% prevent a sandboxed program from reading anything on the OS it is installed on. But in fact, Sandboxie has always been designed to 100% prevent a sandboxed program from writing code outside of the sandbox environment it creates for that program.

Re: Sandboxie and Malware

If Sandboxie allows you to run two instances of the same program, it is obviously containing and hiding files. So why can't it do the same for malware? To clarify, why can't it do exactly what? Prevent sandboxed programs from reading anything outside of the sandbox? Don't think that's possible, as ...

Re: Sandboxie and Malware

I spent countless hours researching and testing the best security setup and approach for the (above average) home user from around 2007 to 2010, and came up with what I thought (and still think) to be an essentially bullet proof method. I've personally never had an unintentional "infection" even pri...

Re: Sandboxie and Malware

It sounds like you would be more comfortable running those programs in a full blown Virtual Machine (I use VirtualBox myself, and it's great). Sandboxie is what we would call "application virtualisation" - it's not meant to be used with the expectation of having a full blown Virtual Machine, and it ...
