Re: impossible to install programs ..

Jean To me the issue is using the best tool for the job. While you might hammer a nail with a screwdriver handle, a hammer works much more efficiently. I use sandboxie strictly as a security tool. I don't install anything in them. I install software to the desktop and run stuff sandboxed. If I want ...

Re: impossible to install programs ..

Hi Jean Keep in mind SBIE is not a VM machine. If you are trying to install programs that require a driver, it won't work. That is what Sandboxie is designed to prevent. As to the forced programs, to force them you have to go into the forced program setting and add the program there. Additionally if...

Windows 10 Insider Preview (Fast Ring) build 14316 is not compatible with SBIE.

We are working on a fix, there is no ETA.
This is a perpetual circus. We shall await.

seems like sandboxie would make for a great alternative to a vm with gpu passthrough
with limitations. Unlike with a vm you can't install anything that needs drivers

Re: Petya!

SBIE. That it doesn't permit reboot is good, but, if it allows the over right of the mbr, then you can't later reboot without continuing the infection. So you are saying the MBR can be over written in SBIE? No. Even it it tried to run a script to "write" to the MBR (example..bootrec /fixboot) it's ...

Re: Petya!

According to the reports, it's a program disguised as HR program..which is a good target for social engineering.. It then requests a reboot to install the "software..." it then displays a fake chkdsk message while it corrupts your MBR and encrypts your drive. I'm curious about the reboot...does it ...

Re: Petya!

HI Craig In this case the mbr isn't written when a disk is partition. If the malware is allowed to run then the first thing it does is over write the mbr. Then it reboots and presents a fake Chkdsk run at which point it encrypts the MFT. So the preventative is not allowing a write to the mbr. Worst ...
