Hello 2newfiedad,

Does Steam work fine outside Sandboxie? Make sure it is fully updated on the hos, then delete the contents of your Sandbox and re-try launching it.
Does the issue occur in a new Sandbox with default settings?
Are you using any security programs? (Antivirus, firewall, etc...)

Please try the latest beta:
