Re: Cannot delete contents

I have looked at the threads and I have not seen any solutions.
I am using Windows 10, Sandboxie 5.22 and McAfee antivirus.
I am trying to upgrade Sandboxie to fix the bug where Chrome does not run under Sandboxie but install fails to complete even if I opt to uninstall the installed version first.

Cannot delete contents

Every time I try to delete the contents of my DefaultBox I get the message "Some sandboxed programs could not be stopped. The contents of the sandbox will not be deleted." It would be helpful if it said which programs could not be stopped; it might be my antivirus but I do not know. How do I get rou...

Cannot access internet

I was sandboxed when I was asked if I wanted to install the latest version of my web browser; I said yes and it completed. Now I cannot access the internet using that browser sandboxed. I now see that the Restrictions section in Settings says this will happen if I download the browser into the sandb...

Multiple sandboxes [SOLVED-DUPLICATE]

A naive question.
If Sandboxie provides complete protection from the internet and all programs are run sandboxed, what is the point of having multiple sandboxes?

Re: Shortcut to sandboxed programs

That'll do! There's more to this program than I realised.

Shortcut to sandboxed programs [SOLVED]

Is it possible to create a shortcut to eg a sandboxed Firefox without going through Sandboxie Control? Where do I find the address?
Many thanks.

Some sandboxed programs could not be stopped

Why does this message appear when I try to delete the contents of the sandbox and how do I prevent it?
Many thanks.

Re: Opera hangs

Many thanks for your reply.
I deleted the contents of the sandbox and it worked!
I would never have made that connection.
I just assumed that the new version of Opera would take over where the previous one had left off.
Many thanks for your help.

Opera hangs after update [SOLVED]

Yesterday I was pestered by Opera to upgrade so I did (unsandboxed), and now when I start it sandboxed it hangs with the message Loading.
The version is 47.0.2631.48 running on Windows 10.
It runs unsandboxed (which defeats the purpose) and Firefox runs sandboxed.
Any ideas?
Many thanks.
