Re: How to Save Video and Audio Files While Sandboxed

Thank you. :D

In Sandbox Settings > Quick Recovery > Add Folder > I saw among the other things "Videos" and tapped on that. To check I removed that video from my laptop, downloaded it again sandboxed, and the recovery popup appeared. 8)

How to Save Video and Audio Files While Sandboxed

Hi! I've noticed a few times that I don't get the quick recovery option after downloading a video or audio file. I always get it for software downloads and Adobe Documents. Is there a way to set it so I'll also get that option for video and audio files? As an example for which today I had to go onli...

Re: HitmanPro Alert 3 and Sandboxie

PS: I just found this instruction on how to make Sandboxie and Alert 3 compatible, here, second post: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/hitmanpro-alert-support-and-discussion-thread.324841/page-264 I had already uninstalled SB, but after reading that I reinstalled. At first SB gave an error mes...

Re: HitmanPro Alert 3 and Sandboxie

@Der Moloch: Thank you too. My machines have only been infected a few times in nearly 10 years. One of them -years ago and the worst case- was when I had gone to Microsoft's Windows Updates website un-sandboxed, thinking that otherwise the updates wouldn't stick on my Windows xp laptop at that time....

Re: HitmanPro Alert 3 and Sandboxie

Thank you for your response. After nearly 10 years of utilizing SB daily by default I should be familiar with it by now. :wink: The program I'm talking about is not the well known HitmanPro scanner. I've utilized that also for a decade next to SB. This is about HitmanPro Alert 3. It also has the Hit...

HitmanPro Alert 3 and Sandboxie

Hi! Today in answer to a question I had asked a HitmanPro Technician (Support) replied that if I am using Alert it is no longer needed to use Sandboxie. And his advise was to remove Sandboxie in order to prevent eventual incompatibility problems. I answered that would be a big step for me after havi...

Tor Accumulating Lots of Stuff in Sandbox

Hi, This is not really a problem I think, but I'm just wondering if anyone here would shed some light on it: When surfing sandboxed with Tor, a lot of specific Tor stuff is accumulating in the sandbox, and Sandboxie asks repeatedly if one want to keep it. One can check the option to not be asked aga...

Re: Adobe Flash, The Spy in Your Computer

Thank you. I still see the page where you can disable or enable the same spy features: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html So I doubt that issue is obsolete. I saw no previously stored websites I visited. Maybe thanks to Sandboxie. I just changed...

Many folders not deleted automatically

Hi!
This has happened for years now, and I never paid much attention to it. Yet I noticed that many times the icon in the tray looks like it is empty, but when I check manually in Delete Contents there are for example over 140 folders in it that have not been deleted.

Just wondering... :?:

Re: Skype Without a Microsoft Account

Never thought of that. So simple! And that while I had taped off my default webcam after installing Skype. This because I have a Logitech C615 webcam, which I only set on the edge of my screen and plug in when I'm going to Skype, which is not often. Anyway, of course I don't mind my contacts seeing ...

Skype Without a Microsoft Account

I have Windows 8 and setting up Skype via the apps page of Metro requires one to have or make a Microsoft Account. Even downloading/installing the default offered version directly from Skype's site does that. Unless one chooses the Desktop version I found out... so that is what I have on my laptop n...

Re: IE10 only working unsandboxed, Firefox not at all

PS: The problems with Windows 8 were far from gone it turns out. During the install and configuration of a series of some 100 Windows updates this message would appear after about an hour and a half: "Failure configuring Windows updates Reverting changes Do not turn of your computer". The updates we...

Making Windows 8 Look and Behave Like Windows 7

Anyone using my new laptop with Windows 8 would think it was running on Windows 7. I used "Startisback" for changing the Windows 8 look to the Windows 7 look and functioning. On top of the Windows 7 Start menu the Windows 8 "Metro" screen appears as an icon, just in case you are so foolish as to wan...
