Preferred Solution: Sandboxie Beta Latest Version 4.01

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I need to update Firefox to latest non-beta version.

I think it is version 47.0 now ?

How do I install new version yet not losing all the data settings like bookmarks
and history etc.. from the version I am using currently ?

Is there a settings file I should save to backup first before I install new non-beta version ? If so, how and from where do I find it to save it ?



Answer:I need to update Firefox to latest non-beta version.

Updating doesn't lose that info. It's in your FF Profile. In FF, just go to Help>About FF and Update occurs automatically. Bookmarks can always be saved on a detachable medium. Also, your backups, if you do them save all your personal data.

We are still unable to reproduce any problems with dropped rights and Chrome here. Therefore, we are going to turn 4.13.7 into 4.14 as soon as possible so that we have a released version that works with Chrome 37/38 (32 & 64). Then we will make another stab at the dropped rights problems. Since Google has disabled any type of crash handling (for unknown reasons), Sandboxie will probably have to do it for them in 4.15.1 so we can diagnose this.

BTW, Chrome 39 Beta (64 bit) even works now (knock on wood). So hopefully soon we can actually work on something besides Chrome!Click to expand...

Sandboxie 4.13.6 Beta / 4.12 Final


Run programs in an isolated space which prevents them from making permanent changes to other programs and data in your computer.
Sandboxie requires neither the disabling nor blocking of functions available to Web sites through the browser. Instead, Sandboxie isolates and quarantines the outcome of whatever the Web site may do to your computer, including the installation of unsolicited software. There is no trade-off of functionality for security: the Web site can use the full range of active content tools, and if it uses these tools maliciously to install software or otherwise make changes in your computer, then these changes can be easily undone.
Sandboxie has originally been designed to increase the security of browsing with Internet Explorer, however it is just as effective with any other browser, and in fact, any other program. Sandboxie wraps a protection layer around the programs it supervises. It is this layer that intercepts and isolates any changes the programs make to the computer. And this layer is impartial to the specific program it wraps.
Sandboxie is a software that allows you isolates and quarantines website.

When you browse the web, changes occur to your computer system.
Most of the time these changes are harmless, like recording the addresses of web sites you have visited (and when), so the browser can help you complete a web address that you type in. Whether these changes ar... Read more

Version 4.18
Released on 28 May 2015.
A security hole with the Windows print spooler has been plugged. An application could use the print spooler to write an arbitrary file outside the sandbox. If Sandboxie detects that the print spooler is attempting to write a file outside the sandbox at the request of a sandboxed application, it will issue "SBIE1319 Blocked spooler print to file".
NOTE: Some printer drivers write temporary files to their own work area, even when not printing to file. In these cases, you will get SBIE1319 even when printing normally (not to file). The print may still print successfully. In this situation, you can safely ignore SBIE1319, hide the error message, or open the folder as described below.

There are 3 ways to allow the print spooler to print to file:

1) If you trust the process that is printing, you can double-click the SBIE1320 (that follows SBIE1319) to allow the print spooler to write files outside the sandbox for that particular process. 2) The spooler can write files outside the sandbox according to OpenFilePath settings. This enables you to permanently open the folders a particular printer driver uses to store its work files. 3) You can manually add the setting AllowSpoolerPrintToFile=y to sandboxie.ini. This is not recommended as it leaves your sandbox open to a print spooler exploit.
Any error msgs generated when auto-deleting a sandbox will now be shown to the user.

A new beta version of Sandboxie was announced: Get it on Sandboxie's forum

Version 3.55.01 introduces kernel-mode protection for 64-bit Windows. With the new Experimental Protection mode enabled, 64-bit Sandboxie is effectively as secure as 32-bit Sandboxie with only a couple of small differences:
1. There is no kernel mode protection for use of the EndTask API to terminate processes outside the sandbox.
2. There is no kernel mode protection that can prevent malware setting the password for a user account which does not have a password set.
3. There is no kernel mode protection that can prevent a program from writing event messages to the Windows logs.

Version 3.57.01 enhances the color border feature a bit:

- On Windows 7 when Aero is enabled, the Sandboxie border rectangle wraps around the Aero border rather than be on top of it.

- The border should hopefully follow the window more closely during a window resize/move operation.

- The border goes invisible if any part of it would be obscured by a window that is "always on top".

- Sandbox Settings > Appearance offers new option to display the border only when the mouse is in the window title area.

- When a new sandbox is created, the default is now to have a yellow border that appears when the mouse is in the title area.Click to expand...


Version 3.57.01 enhances the black window that appears when a program in the sandbox wants administrator privileges:

- Includes a note that explains that programs will continue to run under Sandboxie even with administrator privileges.

- Window can be moved or minimized.

- If you click cancel, the elevation attempt is aborted without a follow-up second (or even a third) elevation prompt that you would also have to cancel.

- When Drop Rights is in effect and message SBIE2219 is issued, you also see a new message SBIE2220 which offers an easy way to turn off the Drop Rights setting.Click to expand...

The 64-bit edition of Windows 8 introduces a new version of the Kernel Patch Protection (PatchGuard) component, which limits Sandboxie v3 in establishing some of the kernel hooks that it needs in order to fully supervise programs.

To ensure a high level of sandbox isolation on Windows 8 and future versions of Windows, and to mitigate the risk that a future update to Windows 7 will include the new PatchGuard, and break compatibility with Sandboxie, version 4 introduces a change in the way Sandboxie works under the hood.

In version 4, Sandboxie is designed to not rely on unofficial hooks into the kernel. (A few such hooks are still in use on Windows XP.) Instead, a program under the supervision of Sandboxie v4 runs with no permissions and cannot access or manipulate objects in the system outside the program's own memory. (This restricted security context can be seen by looking at a process in the sandbox using Process Explorer.)

Sandboxie 4 on 64-bit Windows removes the Experimental Protection feature, and no longer has to suggest use of Drop Rights option.

Minimum Windows Version

Features in the Windows kernel which guarantee that a program cannot improve its own set of permissions are only available starting with Windows XP SP 2, with additional security features in Windows Vista.

Sandboxie v4 officially supports Windows XP SP 3, Windows Vista with Service Pack 2, Windows 7 with Service Pack 1, and W... Read more

Version 4.10
Released on 22 May 2014.

These are the changes to Sandboxie since version 4.08:
The Excel clipboard problem "The picture is too large and will be truncated." has been fixed.

Sandboxie is now built under Visual Studio 2010 and uses newer versions of the Microsoft libraries. Two new security features have been enabled for all Sandboxie binaries: DEP ( ... -questions) and ASLR ( ... domization) .

Fixed the following startup errors on the Dell Venue and other Win 8.1 tablets. SBIE2336 Error in GUI server: 11 / C0000021?. SBIE2335 Initialization failed for process Start.exe 88/0?

Fixed for Windows 8.1 update KB2919355.

Fixed several additional C0000142 (STATUS_DLL_INIT_FAILED) bugs. These could also show up as "CRT not initialized" or "DLL failed to initialize" errors and could also sometimes cause the sandboxed application to crash on start.

Incompatibility with FFX 27 and Avast that caused FFX to run with no visible windows.

Chrome crash when reporting an issue under Tools->Report an issue...

Fixed a problem with DFS drives (Distributed File System)

The "InjectDll" setting would sometimes cause DLL initialization to fail with the message "CRT not initialized" or "DLL failed to initialize".

I want the community to come and share their review/experience with the following Sandboxie alternatives:
Cybergenic Shade vs BitBox vs RE-HIPS(Beta testers can get 1 year license) vs GeSWall

Some points to note:
1) Bitbox was designed with a single purpose in mind,being the minimal on features it's considered as a control, so judge it on the single thing it does best with others.Rest are up for comparisons on defined parameters.

2)The sandbox features tagged along with some AV suites are not considered as it would lead to major changes in security config.

3)UI not considered due to BitBox.

4) All kinds of feedback is welcome, just give a logical reason for your choice.

Answer:Sandboxie free alternatives : Cybergenic Shade vs BitBox vs RE-HIPS(Beta) vs GeSWall

I will go Rehips, for those simple reasons:

- They use only Windows security mechanisms, no hooks or risky workarounds that weaken the kernel.
- They listen their testers, @hjlbx and me gave feedbacks that radically change Rehips, they are going to implement some of them in the next release.

Now we have to consider the other choices you gave:

- Shade : Seems to be the closest things to Sandboxie, unfortunately their support is quite "shady" (they are slow to react) and their licensing model is quite starnge (asking for a license for a free product is bad , especially if the license take ages to be delivered ^^)

- Bitbox: Mostly a browser encapsulated in a Virtual Box hosting a Linux variant. So if you need just a browser sandbox, Bitbox seems to be the strongest. Full Virtualization > Isolation.

- Geswall : long time rival of Sandboxie, but only x86 but now discontinued.

you can add "Defensewall" , one of the best few years ago, however only x86 and soon discontinued, the dev working for Avast if i recall well.

Anyway good war topic, i got bored of those ESET vs Emsi vs KIS vs the world

may not like the IE7 beta. Mine wasn't sure about it, and warned me that I went ahead at my peril. I went ahead, and it all worked perfectly.There's only one way to find out about a public beta, and that's to try it. By the time software reaches the public beta stage most of the more serious bugs have gone, but remember that no major software production, no matter who writes it, can possibly be tested in a real-world situation until it - gets into the real world. That's the whole idea of these public betas, and you need to know it before you start. There may still be problems that won't be revealed until the software hits ten million machines or so, and ten million slightly different hardware/software environments.

Something I noticed if you're using 64-bit Vista or Windows 7:

If you do a scan with HijackThis!, it misidentifies some very important system files/services as being missing, when they aren't, and if you delete the entries and reboot, you'll be running for that system restore disc. The Recovery Environment still doesn't handle these being deleted, as quite a few are critical and the recovery system won't operate properly.

I used it for a few days. I was able to dl all the drivers I needed. For some reaon the Nvidia display drivers have an issue with Windows Media player and cause it to crash when used. Other than that it was stable. But if I can't watch pr0n it's a deal breaker for me.

hi first off im old and know nothing about computers or jargon so if any one replies be gentle with me.
ok i have been playing Open Beta-free-to-play, browser-based games with no problems untill the other night i turned off the computer and it down loaded windows updates .Now no beta games will load and run on my laptop they just freeze the browser and all tabs open i have to shut them down using the small box at the must be something to do with the downloads as i have another computer that they will load on but this is too old and slow to run them on.Any help would be good thanks

Answer:since latest windows up date no beta games will load

Hello cliver and welcome to Seven Forums.

I think you've narrowed down the problem to Windows Updates. I would suggest that you uninstall all of those updates and then see if the games will load and run.

Windows Update - Uninstall an Update

Assuming the games are now working, try reinstalling the updates. But instead of automatically installing all of them at once, install just one at a time and restart the computer after each one. See if the games are still working. If yes, install the next update, restart, check games. Keep doing this until either all of the updates have successfully installed, or you've pinpointed which update is causing the problem.

You can manually check for updates by looking in the start menu for Windows Update, or opening Control Panel > Windows Update. Click on "check for updates" and let the scan finish. You should be presented with a list of available updates (critical, important, optional) and they will probably all be checked. Uncheck all but the first critical update and install, restart, check games.

Answer:Buy latest version?

Well, you don't HAVE to buy the latest version. There are always improvements, but a last generation phone or PC will work just fine, and may even cost less.
You'll have to have at least a basic idea of how the lineup is. Right now, the Lumia's with the middle numbers 3 and 4 are most recent, however, there's more than just buying based on generation. I have to run, but I can elaborate later.

I remember a free version of sandboxie, myself using in my home single computer desktop running on Win7.
When the same computer migrated to Win 10 I did not get the free version of the sandboxie.
I just searched on google and could find paid version for home use. Is there any unpaid version of similar one to sandboxie available?
Thank you for your time.

Answer:Is there a free version of the "Sandboxie" available?

As far as I'm aware, the basic download of Sandboxie is still free, from
Even the "paid" home version page indicates, at the bottom:   "If you do not agree to these terms, you may continue to use Sandboxie free of charge, as long as you are not in violation of any of the conditions of the EULA.
So I suggest you download it, and [try to] install it.   I believe it will succeed.   The worst that can happen is that it will advise you that you have to pay to continue... but I don't expect that to happen.

End of Support for AVG 6.0Grisoft announces the end of support for AVG version 6.0 effective on December 31, 2004 for technical reasons. This version has been available since 1999. Its structure does not allow for further improvements planned for version 7 nor improvements in detection techniques expected to come in the future.End of support means we will no longer provide program updates or Virus Database updates for version 6.0 and therefore, within days, this version will not protect against new virus outbreaks!Current AVG 6.0 users should upgrade to AVG 7.0.

Some of you may be using O&O Defrag Version 4.0, so I thought I would pass along my impressions of the current version, Version 6.5.

As some know, I am very hesitant to upgrade most of the software on my machine because I am cheap, and also because I have everything running the way I like it. Additionally, I hate bloat in any form or fashion, and have been known to rant endlessly about it. I often move back to a previous version of whatever software with much bitching and ranting about useless new features that do little more than slow down the program in question, and take up space. Nonetheless, I decided to upgrade my O&O from V.4.0.

The program is far quicker and more effective. Now it also adds the option to use an online server to assist in defragmenting sensitive files. "Complete support of new Windows XP functions (Layout.ini) and online defragmentation of important system files such as the MFT (Master File Table)." I was skeptical, but it works great. Now, boot time defragmentation time is far less due to the fact that the program handles many more files without the need for a defrag at boot. I'm not sure how, but whatever, it works. A new method of defragmentation called "modified" has been added. It is an ingenious variation on the old "access" method which is still an option. O&O is smarter, too. "Defrag automatically detects the right time for the next defragmentation with the help of heuristic me... Read more

Maybe check the latest update for Firefox before you use it as there has been changes to XP-Vista and some Mac's.
Probably ok but worth a check first.

I have seen 1.3.1 TX being referred to as the latest version and people being recommended to install it. It isn't the latest version. Spybot 1.3.1 beta was released on 6 Aug '04 and the TX version (to address specific issues) was released on 13 Sept '04. Both were withdrawn on 26 Nov '04 and were removed from the home site. They should not be available from other sites. See click here for question and answer. The answer contains two links to threads which further explain the matter. Please note that I am reporting what is on the Spybot forum. Complaints, objections, etc. to that forum and not to me, please!

Answer:Spybot 1.3.1 TX is not the latest version

I assume you refer to my post?,i didnt say it was the latest version only that it fixed the DSO exploit bug,it doesnt change anything about spybot just the DSO bug,spybot still works the same as before the fix,i have read the spybot forum pages about this and i installed this on my pc some time ago with no ill,affects.Im not gripping at you just pointing out about my post.

Hi there,

This is something I've seen for the first time: latest BIOS version (that, by chance, I use) disappears from site.

A few months ago I updated the BIOS (HP Insyde) to the latest version: site mentioned this is version F.26 and all went well.
Checked BIOS and System Info: yep is F.26 alright.
I have it backuped. Was released in April - May.

There are no issues at all so far but HP seems to have reverted back to version F.24 as the latest one on the website.
I don't think it's possible to revert back the update because it was mentioned in the change-log but to me this version is stable.

This is the same site and laptop model.
Notice sp60606 for F.24 while the F.26 is called sp61457...

I wonder why they removed it...
Any ideas on this one? Anyone else seen this or similar on their machines?

Well, since all functions normally I'll keep this F.26 version and check their site regularly just in case.


Answer:BIOS latest version

Maybe they pulled it because of this discovered issue when certain hardware configurations were trying (unsuccessfully) to update to F.26:

Hi there
Very useful tool for re-partitioning, moving / re-sizing partitions, modyfing etc. Bootable so a lot of functions that you can't do from within Windows itself can be performed such as re-sizing the OS partition itself without having to re-install the OS.

Hi..I'm running MySQL Database server: 4.0.24I'd like to upgrade to 4.1 versions, without loosing my databases or corrupting them.What is the best procedure to do this? Last time I tried, by copying the bin/data file it corrupted it, backup and export were the same. This was on an old server though, and it was an over the top install.. I think it needed a uninstall - reinstall.Anyone suggest anything?PS. This is a Windows Based systemRegards.

Answer:MySQL latest version...

was there something different about passwords and authentication in the new 4.1 versions?

I now have this program on trial and wanted to know if it can playback. I have copied cd's and dvd's on my new external burner for my notebook and can't playback anything.

I have burned on my cd/rw burner on my notebook and played back the cd with Windowns Media Player and then also played back dvd's with the Intervideo Win DVD.

If I can do this and my external burner is connected by a usb 2.0 does anyone know why i can't playback on the external burner?
I can't see where there is an option though;on the Windows media player to change the source to have the external burner play? Or will this program work with the burner, I believe it should.

And then I get back to ...can Nero playback??

I tried Roxio and it could playback, however it was not good for copying cd's and thus I am trying out Nero.

Appreciate all comments, thankyou
