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 ...

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

Hi, it's been nearly 5 months since this Chrome issue was reported. Any progress on an internal fix? I'm fine using the workaround, but just curious as to if any of the devs have discovered something.

Hi, going with the same theme as above (quoted from version 5.14 thread), what do you guys think about updating it to 2004-2017?

Re: Opera 42.0.2393.85 + Sanboxie 5.16 Final=crash not fixed

Installing outside and running sandboxed has generally never been a problem since Sandboxie's inception. However, directly installing within the sandbox is a different story.

Re: Chrome stopped working inside SB all sudden.

To be fair, there were several instances of Chrome not directly installing well within Sandboxie. About 3-4 years ago (perhaps longer), I remember trying it and it failed miserably. However, the last few years of "compatibility" has been excellent. But it's no surprise that it's now struggling again.

Nice spotting. Hopefully that is corrected soon. Not the first time this sort of thing has happened too.

Thank you for your feedback.
I have added an extra step to make the process more clear.

Thanks. That extra step makes it work well. And it makes good sense too.
