    I have installed Sandboxie 5.33.6 on my windows 7 PC, I can't seem to use google chrome with Sandboxie but other browsers such as FireFox and IE are working with it.

    I'm not sure, but it might be my antivirus because before I was using Avast and google chrome was working with Sandboxie, but I changed my antivirus recently to Eset and chrome stopped working with Sandboxie.

    These are the error messages that I am getting:

    Any fix to this?

    I have been using Sandboxie for 10+ years, and have been running ESET NOD32 on a couple Windows 7 machines along with SBIE for 8 of those years, so hopefully you know that it is a standard combination, and you discover the correct configuration. At the very least, make sure in the Sandboxie Contol window to select Configure|Software Compatability|ESET. Also (and this is probably too obvious for me to be mentioning), make sure that [chrome.exe] is showing under Forced Programs. Good luck.

    Hello, I have just tried your suggestion, but still no luck getting chrome to work. I even added chrome and Sandboxie to my exception list on Eset.

    Not a good idea to exclude Chrome in ESET. FWIW, I am running ESET without any exclusions, so I know that is not necessary. Wait until member bo elam shows up. Bo knows these things. ;)

    Unfortunately, I did not get it to work. I have installed Microsoft Edge as an alternative to Chrome and I still get the same error messages, as of right now I'm just messing around with ESET settings to try and fix this issue.
