Hello f23948 ,

What issues do you encounter with the website?
What are your OS, Sandboxie, Antivirus and browser versions?

Are there any error messages?

Regards,
Barb.-

Hello f23948,

Sandboxie is not an antivirus but an isolation tool.

Please see below to learn how does Sandboxie protect you:

If you are running your browser inside the Sandbox, everything you download via it will be contained inside Sandboxie (thus, protecting your host).

Regards,
Barb.-

Hello f23948,

If you run the web browser (or any application) inside the Sandbox, any contents from it will stay inside the sandbox (until you delete it), so it will not touch your host.

However, please keep this in mind when working with malware:
