Hi tzuk
I think you've done a really great job with Sandboxie,it's light on my resources it's not slowing down my browsing either ,I hope you get a little more recognition for your efforts than you have done so far because you thoroughly deserve it for this software.
I'm just wondering if you could explain a bit about what's happening in the registry under HKey Users /sandbox?

Thanks again

regards
Kaupp

Kaupp thanks for the kind words :D You can help with the recognition though, just tell everyone you know how great Sandboxie is. :wink:

About the registry:

Sandboxie must always be able to give the sandboxed process a usable registry key. Even if the was created by a sandboxed process, and it doesn't exist outside the sandbox, the process should still be given a key object to work with. The HKCU\Sandbox subtree is used to give processes dummy key objects for keys that they think exist, but in fact do not.

Currently what happens is that for EVERY key accessed by a sandboxed process, a corresponding dummy key is built under the HKCU\Sandbox key. That probably isn't necessary, but that's how it works right now. It doesn't seem to incur a horrible overhead, so I won't mess with it for the time being. They say if it's not broken, don't fix it. :D

Yes, the keys are deleted along with everything else in the sandbox.
