    If this has already been answered I apologize. I didn't see it.
    I have Windows 7 Pro x64. I have been beta testing for quite awhile now and have v.8.0.123 running with Sandboxie v. 3.62 for 64 bit.
    I can get the Lock Icon if I run outside of the sandbox but that kind of defeats the purpose.
    When I run sandboxed I get no Lock Icon which leaves me feeling much less secured.
    Is there a simple fix for this?
    Thanks.

    No there isn't it's because how Sandboxie works by isolation sorry.

    Thanks to both of you for the help.

    As mentioned in the other threads, you could probably get around this by only browsing with an unsandboxed browser when on banking/purchasing websites. Those sites would be unlikely to infect you (and the rest of WSA's protection will still apply) but it will give WSA the ability to communicate in and out of the browser to facilitate its Identity Shield protection accurately.
