    Hi jaodsvuda. Why is it that Shade is not for you? Can you explain. I never tested Shade and dont test programs often but I been thinking about testing Shade, and probably will do it sometime in the future. Let me know.

    Why are you calling Sandboxie problematic? What is it you want to do with SBIE but cant get it done? Theres really not much room for SBIE to be problematic with the free version, perhaps you want more out of Sandboxie than what Sandboxie can give you. Le me know. :)

    Hi , Bo .

    SBIE free protects me enough (for a free app),but it's buggy lately (Win7 x64 : freezing torrent-client Tixati ,and giving me some error-code with FFox on a few YouTube clips).

    I'm using SBIE free for years,so for me - trying Shade means comparing it to SBIE.
    With SBIE you can set your browser as you like,install additional extensions and themes, than sandbox it.With Shade you can't.You're stuck with some kind of stripped-down version of FFox / Chromium (user settings changed,bright theme is default,no add-ons at all,and no option to reinstall them).

    Browsing without add-blocking (I'm using gorhill's trio) is unacceptable for me.No extensions means Free Download Manager's (IDM etc.) not working anymore (and with SBIE it works perfectly).That's a big deal for me (downloading from VideoHelp/Softpedia on a daily basis etc.).
    On the other hand,Tixati's working just fine with Shade.

    So , for simple daily browsing / downloading (no heavy torrenting) with FFox or Chromium ,Shade is worse than SBIE for me.

    I never used torrents but that type of program are probably tough for Sandboxie. Guessing, the freezing could be caused by your AV when scanning torrents inside the sandbox. You could check that.

    I do a lot of YouTube, I havent experienced any SBIE errors there You should not be getting any. Some SBIE messages are information, not errors, perhaps thats what you are getting.
    Excellent comparison. I would feel the same way as you regarding Firefox. I didnt know, you have to use Shades own Firefox version, instead of your version. That wouldn't work for me either. Thanks.

    Just a plain old anime mkv's , so not something Kaspersky SC would see as a threat.I've never seen this kind of bug with older versions of SBIE free.Sandboxed Tixati freezes during sorting what episodes to download.
    Shade and Tixati doesn't have this problem.They work flawlessly together.

    What I basically meant is that I don't understand what these comments had to do with this thread. You (Peter2150) said "She is right to be concerned", but I don't know to who this was directed. But anyway, I didn't notice any of the problems because I don't always update Sandboxie right away. If it works, it works, know what I mean.

    I keep trying to stop this starting on bootup, (Win10) by disabling in the startup settings, but it always starts again on the next rebooto_O
