Re: Error:Platform 'version 66.0.3'is not compatible [SOLVED]

Re: missing [x] sign

Yeah,I checked that our from the start,but it doesn't work. okay, now if you use separate sandboxes and one of them is dedicated to Firefox you might try deleting contents. If not then try "Remove Sandbox" and re-create it (remember you will need to set it up again because all settings will be gone...

Seems to me you are simply stating the facts as you understand them, namely, you have two computers, one with Windows 7 and the other with XP, and the Windows 7 system got infected. Now, you're asking for ad...

Stopping "cmd.exe" from running sandboxed

I found a website where a poster suggested that Sandboxie users edit Sandboxie to prevent "cmd.exe" from running,but didn't spell out how to do it. Is this a good thing to do?
