    Where can I see sandboxed programs in the Avast sandbox? I can't find where they are located so I can see which they are if something does get put in there.

    Also with Avast's sandbox is it OK to leave it on when installing windows updates/programs. Also my friend had the sandbox set to automatic when she was installing windows updates and is worried if that could of messed it up.

    Shes worried because the sandbox is set to automatic and will she get an alert when something goes in it even if its set to automatic? Shes worried if it will affect the windows update as well. Also she wants to know if the Avast sandbox can get FPs. Shes worried about if the Avast sandbox had an error and trapped the windows update yellow shield.

    Cheater87 you need to show hidden files and folders and you will see a folder in the root of each drive in your PC called aswSNX (or similar, don't have it installed now to check!). This is the Avast sandbox container.

    Cheers

    During the shut down it said something.exe when it said "end now" on the square box thing right after installing the windows updates (when it was set as automatic for sandbox for avast). do u think it should still be safe? i haven't got the yellow shield for windows updates yet and im afraid maybe because of what happened last time.
