Re: Sandboxie STEAM UAC mode (on windows 7) overloading cpu

I went ahead and ran some experiments using steam and sandboxie. Fresh copy of windows 10 updated on build 1607. Fresh copy of sandboxie and steam and nothing else. Steam requires no login or games installed to witness the effects. Default sandbox settings from a fresh install. Steam installed but n...

Re: Sandboxie STEAM UAC mode (on windows 7) overloading cpu

Hi barb, I just wanted to share with you some of the same problems I've been having with steam recently and how to reproduce them. Operating Sytem: Windows 10x64 build 1607, fresh install with no additional software Sandboxie: v5.14 Application: Steam, latest as of the time of this posting Antivirus...

Forced Folders & Network Locations [POTENTIAL SECURITY RISK]

So while doing some work, a concern cropped up while I was editing some files on a network drive. How do you use Sandboxie to force programs running on an unmapped SMB network share ( \\computername\folder ) to run in a sandbox ? Sure anything I download will show up in a folder location that can be...

Re: [REQUEST YOUR ASSISTANCE]|Ransomware & SBIE

Trust no program: - Do not use Metro style applications, as they cannot be sandboxed, hence they cannot be trusted - Do not ever install software onto a bare system unless absolutely necessary, this includes Antivirus Sandboxie virtualization (In my case, vmware player) - Install each piece of softw...

OS: Win 10 x64 build 10240 Sanboxie: 5.08 licensed Software: Skype 7.18.0.112 AV: Symantec Endpoint Protection I've noticed a few times over the last month an error message popping up in my Skype sandbox.

Re: Request: Start/Run Access Restriction allowing sandboxed

A compromised browser is low on my list of priorities, and I used it here as an easy example. What I'm really interested in is data/process isolation. "Uninstalling" a program is as simple as deleting the sandbox it resides in; I'm much more concerned with programs clogging up and worming into who k...

Re: Request: Start/Run Access Restriction allowing sandboxed

This solution ended out working out pretty well ! I made a "C:\Sandbox Program Files\" Folder and had the sandboxed programs install there (within their respective sandboxes) and copied the exes out of the sandbox into the bare drive. Another sandbox uses that location as a forced folder, ensuring t...

Re: Request: Start/Run Access Restriction allowing sandboxed

Ohh I understand that, and I've got about a dozen or so sandboxes for just such purposes with a lifetime license (firefox as an example, one of them). What I want to do is ensure that no applications OTHER than what is specified can run within them. In said example, I only want firefox.exe (in addit...

Request: Start/Run Access Restriction allowing sandboxed exe

Referencing the help pages ( http://www.sandboxie.com/index.php?RestrictionsSettings#startrun ), I we find the text: When any Start/Run restrictions are in effect, programs that are installed (or downloaded) into the sandbox will never be allowed to start or run. This works well for applications ins...

Re: Sandboxie & UAC

1. It's not possible that I know of. 2. In your feature idea, Clicking for example "no" in SBIE popup would still, most likely have the requirement to have you click yes/no in Windows authorizing/granting access. Unless you specifically turn of UAC for Windows Security. That's probably something we...

Re: Sandboxie & UAC

Yes, that's exactly what I want to see and suspected it was, but couldn't confirm. The fix I'm looking for: Give this screen MORE visibility ! It tells me not only what's asking for permission but in what sandbox which is perfect. So the question then becomes, how do we give this more screen time ? ...

Sandboxie & UAC

For reference, I'm running sandboxie under windows 10. Whenever a sandboxed application requests UAC, unfortunately the UAC box reports that Sandboxie is askign for the permission. I'm able to catch snippets of a new box that pops up shortly before the screen goes blank for UAC to do it's thing. I s...

Re: 5.01 Beta Available (latest version 5.04 RC)

Quite honestly I think calling the current state of SBIE a RC is a bit of a joke. Lots of programs don't work (Steam, Slack, probably many others) and it seems you're just taking stabs in the dark trying to fix it. I'm really surprised that there is still no stable version available as windows 10 d...
