Dllhost.exe and SandboxieCrypto.exe in .rar ? [SOLVED]

Post by issoubagnado » Wed Jan 09, 2019 3:51 am

Hello

As my title says, when I run a .rar file (it's all about me), I see in sandboxie dllhost.exe and sandboxieCrypto.exe, does my .rar file contain a virus? your help because I tell you that I'm a little afraid

hi issoubagnado,

You will need to use an antivirus software to scan your files for viruses, as that is out of scope and we cannot tell you if your files are infected. Please, have a look at the Virus FAQ for more information regarding Sandboxie and viruses:

Regards,

PS: As an idea, create a .rar file yourself, with some files you are sure are not infected, and see if you get the same results. That should help you better understand what happens when you invoke WInrar and use it to explore files.

dllhost is a windows mechanism to isolate critical routines from being intrusive to the host, it is used also in the "real" system if you start a process manager, eg "process monitor sysinternals" or "process hacker".

winrar here dont load dllhost in the box, yours could be initiated from the rar file or winrar as trial.

i recommend you NOT to screw on windows to eliminate it!

I use 7Zip, 7Zip doesn't invoke dllhost.exe. But I just tested WinRar installing it in a sandbox to see what I see. As soon as WinRar opens, dllhost runs. So, I think you should be fine. And can expect dllhost to run whenever you use the program. Do the yest suggested by Barb, it ll put your mind at ease.
