    Hi :D

    I am hoping for some advice....

    CapsHook.exe is a small utility from Asus that runs in the background and notifies you via the Notification Area if you enable/disable the Caps Lock. It is only visible in the Notification Area whilst Caps Lock is enabled.

    Whilst using Sandboxed Chrome the utility does not work, however, if I click out of the Chrome window it works.

    Does anyone know how I could let this utility work with Sandboxed Chrome?

    I have a Default Sandbox, using Drop My Rights only.

    I would appreciate any advice,

    Cheers,

    Adam

    Have you tried to add CapsHook.exe to programs allowed to start in "Restrictions/Start/Run access? You could also check in "Applications/Desktop Utilities if CapsHook is listed.

    Thanks for your reply.

    All programmes are allowed to Start/Run, and CapsHook does not appear to be listed.

    I wonder if there is anything else to try?

    Perhaps you could try to post your problem at the Sandboxie forum while somebody here might come up with the solution.
