First of all, I know that Sandboxie's FAQ states this:
I have been installing Sandboxie in a few systems with few resources for friends, and therefore, along side other applications, I've set Sandboxie's service to Manual and deleted Sandboxie's autostart registry entry. I created a batch file to automatically start Sandboxie's service a few seconds after session logon and a few seconds after Sandboxie's tray bar icon will appear as well.How to configure Sandboxie for only an occasional use?
By default Sandboxie is configured to load and start automatically. To have Sandboxie load only when you need it, make the following changes.
In Sandboxie Control, open the Configure -> Shell Integration window, and clear the checkbox When Windows starts to stop Sandboxie Control from starting.
Open the Windows Services configuration window: Start menu -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services. Then locate the Sandboxie Service. Double click to bring up its properties window. Set its Startup type to Manual rather than automatic.
The driver component of Sandboxie is started by the Sandboxie Service. Therefore, setting the service to start manually, indirectly also sets the driver to start manually.
Starting Sandboxie Control will also start the service. (But note that Administrative rights are required to start a service.)
I'd like for a much finer solution, though. So, what do you think of having Sandboxie allow the user to create a scheduled task, with Administrative privileges obviously, so that Sandboxie's service is started a few seconds after session logon and then after a few seconds Sandboxie's tray bar icon load?
It could done via install/upgrade process is some advanced configuration or some option in Sandboxie Control (Sandboxie would need to ask for permissions to create such task.), with options to set the time interval between session logon - Sandboxie's service - tray bar icon. And, upon each install/upgrade it should verify that such tasks are already created and skip it.
I truly believe this would be a great "feature". Something that Sandboxie could do at user's request, rather than the user having to know to create batch files and create tasks.
It would be really nice if you could do it.
