    I recently installed Sandboxie, mainly for browsing sandboxed.
    Last night I played Skyrim on the PC for a while and this morning, Sandboxie randomly popped up asking if I wanted to allow the save games o_O

    How can I configure Sandboxie not to run certain apps, i.e. Steam and games sandboxed? I don't wanna risk playing for hours and the saves not working!

    The game was installed before Sandboxie. It just popped up after I had played the game and the pc had been turned off!

    The only way this could have occured is if you were running the game within Sandboxie. As in lauching steam in a Sandbox and then playing Skyrim.

    I play all of my games outside of the Sandbox. Just to prevent any issues that might occur with me not saving my game right.
