    Of course with such great news one can stay positive! :thumb: Thank you very much, David. :)

    diversenok, thanks for that link. Always wondered how the Chrome sandbox worked. Also very informative link within that link to Sandbox FAQ. (Now, if only I understood 100% of it :confused:)

    Thanks. The level of detailed system knowledge you guys have is impressive. Over my head for sure.

    If it is a flag in Chrome V86, does that mean it can be shut off in chrome://flags? Or is this the same as disabling the sandbox?

    What is your opinion on the probability of a fix from Chrome on this? To me it sounds unlikely as sandboxie could be seen as a competitor product as it seems largely unneccesary.

    Looking forward to this!

    As a day-to-day user (as opposed to a coder), I'd also love it if somebody gave a brief road map to David's Plus GUI, emphasizing the differences between it and the original GUI. I think, but still am not sure, that the Plus GUI is the only way to access some new features (e.g., snapshots) but that it's still lacking some old features (e.g., download recovery, which I use all the time). I think I also saw somebody post that both GUIs could be run simultaneously, but I suppose there are pitfalls to doing this... -- jclarkw

    If you click on my link above you will see the write up.
    There is no difference in the GUI between 5.33.6 and 5.43.6.

    The download is mentioned here. (I used the SandboxieInstall64-v5.43.6 one)

    Sorry, stapp. I misunderstood your intent.
    Here I meant the differences between the https://github.com/sandboxie-plus/Sandboxie/releases/download/v0.4.2/Sandboxie-Plus-x64-v0.4.2.exe' Sandboxie-Plus-x64-v0.4.2.exe GUI and the https://github.com/sandboxie-plus/Sandboxie/releases/download/v0.4.2/SandboxieInstall64-v5.43.6.exe' SandboxieInstall64-v5.43.6.exe GUI. -- jclarkw

    If you had in mind some general information about the classical Sandboxie (that's the one offered by David with version 5.43.6) you can find it for example here (it is from the old sandboxie.com site via archive.org): https://web.archive.org/web/20200613225535/https://www.sandboxie.com/HelpTopics

    or links to other tutorials: https://web.archive.org/web/20200423115358/https://www.sandboxie.com/ExternalTutorials

    or the tutorial written by Bo Elam: https://win10.guru/toolkit-item-sandboxie-by-guest-author-bo-elam/

    Peter 123 -- Thanks for those useful links to information that has become difficult to find. I'm (reasonably) conversant with the classical GUI.

    Right now I'm more interested in the differences in David's new Plus GUI, which, as far as I know, has not received a real description (not to mention a user guide, which I realize is too much to ask of the developer). -- jclarkw

    Perhaps those who migrate from Tom's seemingly abandoned (?) 5.33.6 version to David's (gratefully) maintained Classical version 5.43.6 (or Plus) version will now consider helping out with donations for a legit certificate?

    You are right, it's annoying, but I think, in this case you would have to turn to the one, who got the money ... But you won't achieve anything more at this address ... even if it's called life time, I never expect the program or the company to really last forever. And so I think we have to be happy, that David Sandboxie is continuing and supporting him, that he will be able to sign drivers without applications flagging it as malware.

    Is the best way to make a donation via your website?

    I just donated in the hope to get a working (legit) cert so I can switch from the latest 5.33.6 soon (tm)

    It should be clear there is not a Tom's version. 5.33.6 is the last version released by Sophos.

    It seems I can't donate via PayPal, as I only have a credit card linked to the account so my balance is always zero. Never tried this before, so am I missing something? I don't want to add a bank account.

    Chrome devs have stated they won't fix Chrome not working with Sbie 5.33.6.

    https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=1136501

    People now have 2 choices, either stick with 5.33.6 and all the workarounds needed to make it work with 86 build of Chrome, or use Davids build 5.43.6 which definitely works without the need for workaround (but awaits a cert.)
